Event description
Join us for a live coloring event to celebrate the publication of FANNING THE FLAMES, a coloring book for adults from Molly Crabapple

About this event

Join us October 22 at 6:30 PM at Pete’s Candy Store to celebrate the launch of Fanning the Flames, a madcap coloring book strictly for adults featuring some of Molly Crabapple’s early illustrations of burlesque performers. Within the pages of this coloring book, you will find political theater and jest in abandon, along with clever visual critiques of capitalism and overconsumption.

This will be an interactive launch party; we will have prints from the book and crayons for you to color along with your friends and other attendees. (Don’t worry, Pete’s will have the alcohol flowing if you wish.) And if you end the night wanting more, we’ll have copies of Fanning the Flames for you to purchase. What’s more? Molly will be at the event to share some of the stories that inspired these illustrations and to encourage you to color both in and outside of her political art.

This event will be held in the outdoor area of the Pete’s Candy Store and attendees will be encouraged to keep their mask on when not drinking or consuming food. It is also free!
