Mr. Fish is Back in Town

Editorial cartoonist and illustrator Mr. Fish, a.k.a. Dwayne Booth, has landed in Los Angeles via his book tour. Mr. Fish is a regular contributor to Truthdig and Harper’s, though Angelenos may remember him best for his six-year gig at the LA Weekly. He was blacklisted by the alt-weekly back in 2010 for speaking rather candidly about what he viewed as the paper’s “obvious drop in quality,” but then, what else would you expect from a guy whose bread n’ butter is political satire and social commentary?

Point is, he’s mouthy, he came out with a book, and he’s in town to sign it. Where to find him:

* Thursday, 2/9, 7:00 pm
Revolution Books
5726 Hollywood Blvd., Los Angeles

* Monday, 2/13, 7:30 pm – 9:30 pm
In conversation Robert Scheer, author of Playing President. Presented by the Center for the Study of Political Graphics.
West Hollywood Library
625 N. San Vicente Blvd., West Hollywood

* Tuesday, 2/14, 7:00pm
Vroman’s
