KALA presents Ariel Gore’s LITERARY CURES FOR FASCISM FATIGUE: A VARIETY SHOW on Monday March 25, 7:30 p.m. Come for the clamor of words, drawings and live music, featuring Author Ariel Gore, Performance artist/comedian Rachel Lionheart, Musician Maddi Epping, graphic novelist Rebecca Fish Ewan, plus local writers.

Rebecca Fish Ewan is the author of the new graphic memoir By the Forces of Gravity (2018). Through drawings and free verse, hailed as “a wildly unique new genre,” she captures the raw fascination of a childhood friendship in 1970s Berkeley.

Rachel Lionheart, performing artist and comedian, will MC the event, and cartoonist Shannon Wheeler, author of Sh*t My President Says: The Illustrated Tweets of Donald J. Trump (2017), will present a brief history of political cartooning.

Former Astorian Maddi Epping (aka Merlyn) of Mary Jane will play American Gothic folk–sultry sounds to calm the ego in a floating waltz and dreamlike trance.
Also featuring bedazzled literary superstar Ariel Gore, author of We Were Witches (2017), and over a dozen other books of fiction and nonfiction. Ariel Gore is the founding Editor/Publisher of Hip Mama magazine.

Additional readers include local writer and cartoonist Alyssa Graybeal, Missy Ladygo, Dot Hearn, Candace Walsh, Ky Delaney, Dot Hearn, Kassie Hughes, and Emily Skelding.

Doors open 7 p.m./show 7:30 p.m. $7 cover. KALA is located at 1017 Marine Dr. in Astoria.
