My friend Nadia "Toughspirit" Burgess and I will be sharing a table at MoCCA Fest this weekend! Table D153 ... on the FIRST floor this time! Not 4th like last year... the new venue only has 2 floors thank God. It's at "Metropolitan West" 639 West 46th St, right by the Highline and the Intrepid! Only $5 per day to get in! Kids under 12 are free. Saturday April 2 and Sunday April 3 from 11A-6P both days.
A major special guest this year is my former cartooning professor, Phoebe Gloeckner!! Her work The Diary of a Teenage Girl, an account of her teen years in prose and pictures, was recently adapted into a critically-acclaimed and award-winning film! The book "received notable recognition as well as controversy for its honest portrayal of teenage sexuality with themes of drug use and childhood traumas.She'll be part of the official programming, going on at Ink48, around the corner from the fest (653 11th Avenue at 48th Street). VERY EXCITING!!
But MoCCA Fest isn't an April Fool's - that's happening for real ;)
