OCTOBER 24

Enduring Village Voice cartoonist Stan Mack boards a time machine to visit the Revolutionary War era in Stan Mack’s Real Life American Revolution. Applying the same vérité wit and wisdom that infuses Stan Mack’s Real Life Funnies, he tells the story of the rebellion against King George III; Washington’s historic crossing of the Delaware (“Henry, sit your butt down before you swamp us”); and, of course, the Boston Tea Party. Meanwhile, in a space/time continuum closer to home, Mack has collaborated with author Janet Bode to produce Heartbreak and Roses: Real Life Stories of Troubled Love, an illustrated kids’ book on young love. Mack and Bode sign and read from their work today from noon-2 p.m. at B. Dalton, 1331 Pennsylvania Ave. NW. FREE. (202) 393-1468. (Jack Shafer)
