Come over to the Barnard Library for our annual zine-making event this Wednesday, July 23 11:00-5:00! We'll have our usual 6 hour zine challenge, but anyone can stop in for any amount of time they choose. We'll have juice boxes, vegan snacks, and glue sticks (but those are not for eating). Come join us and finish anything you might have started on our MTA Zine residency, which was featured in the New York Times! Hope to see you!
Peachy Keen #4 is taking submissions right now on ways in which intersections can create more productive and positive activist spaces. Ideas include, but are not limited to, "The role of internet activism, navigating queer spaces, accessibility, academic theory and exclusivity, the role of allies, the "boy's club" in the emo/punk scene, navigating social change under the anarcho-lens, negotiating the neo-western perspectives of feminism, body politics, and art as activism." Talk about variety!
I'm crossing off Days 2 and 4 at once by reading this series today. It's the International Queer Art and Activism Zine: Exploring the intersections of art and activism.
You know what that means? An entire month of zine related activities! The amazing and talented Alex Wrekk has created a poster to to help everyone keep track of all 31 activities you can do. I'm so excited I think I'll start right now!
A lot of my zine librarian and zine making homies are at the American Librarian Association Annual Conference in Las Vegas this weekend. I am not, partially because, Ugh: Las Vegas, but I am jealous that they all get to hang out together at the Zine Pavilion.

Amelia and Sarah have just finished putting together Period. The Zine! and are already beginning to take submissions for issue #2. You know you want to submit something or get a copy of issue 1!
When you're read as many riot frrrl zines as Jenna and I have, you start to recognize band names even if you've never heard any of their music. One that came up recently was Bunnygrunt.
After laughing a little bit and looking at gifs of bunnies, I decided to do some research into the band.
