The relationship between this book and zines?

It was written by one of our zine collection donors, Lauren Jade Martin, who published a zine called Who Is Fit for Motherhood: Why Abortion Is Not the Only Reproductive Right in 1999.

Dr. Martin grew up from zine girl to tenure track Women's Studies coordinator. Congratulations, Lauren!

It's also the anniversary of Dr. Martin Luther King's birth, which further makes the case for Lauren's book being the poster image for today's cataloging update.

 

Here's a zine a friend sent me that I'm keeping for myself. Sorry, Barnard Zine Library!

The Barnard Zine Library does not hold this zine, but the image goes with the Boxing Day title.

While I was cataloging zines, these two things were happening:

Guess which one I wish I'd attended.

This is what's going on at your zine librarian's house about now, aside from cataloging other people's zines:


Farfel is this close to kicking my zine copies off the table if I don't pay attention to him.

November 14th is your zine librarian's father's birthday, so in his honor, here's a zine cover from a rad dad I know, who happens to publish a zine called...Rad Dad. My dad is, in fact, rad.

This weekend was the 12th Philly Zine Fest

I didn't go, but I did catalog a bunch of zines. 
 

Today I'm cataloging issues of Xerography Debt, donated by the editor, Davida Gypsy Breier, posing below as Tom Selleck. Happy Halloween, everyone!
