Molly Crabapple writes in her newsletter:
I’ll be chatting with my beloved collaborator John Leavitt and historian Trav S. D, author of No Applause Just Throw Cash: The Book that made Vaudeville Famous, about my first graphic novel, Scarlett Takes Manhattan. Hailed by Warren Ellis as “a madly funny firepit of debauchery. Disgustingly wonderful,” Scarlett Takes Manhattan is a comic take on Horatio Algar stories and the confusion of sex, gender, entertainment, and politics. Set in the Gilded Age, the graphic novel takes a sexy, saucy, and salacious glimpse of the New York vaudeville scene at its bawdiest best. We’ll also discuss the history of sex and performance in New York City.
