Mojave Weather Diaries 4

The high desert’s very own Kate McCabe presents her latest comic, Mojave Weather Diaries 4!  Join us Saturday, July 13, at 7:00 pm for a reading of this brand new book in the Starlight Courtyard behind the HDTS HQ, followed by a screening of a couple of Kate's short films.

In 2009, Kate started documenting her daily weather dealings in the California desert where she lives near the rock-n-roll heaven known as Joshua Tree. Inspired by original female homesteaders’ autobiographical writings, sailors’ logs, the video diaries of George Kuchar and Ben Franklin’s “Poor Richard’s Almanac”, the Mojave Weather Diaries are the desert life of a modern city kid recorded in Fahrenheit and summed up in make out sessions.
