Booklyn Artists Alliance is having a 24-Hour Zine Event starting Saturday, July 27th! Described as an "OVERNIGHT ZINE FACTORY / SLUMBER PARTY / MEDIA JAM," this is one party that you don't want to miss!
I remember from elementary school that June 14th is Flag Day, hence the title of this post.

Today, I'm cataloging a bunch of zines that I ordered, a few that were hand-delivered, and when I'm done with them getting back to Keight's delightful donation.
The Flyaway Zine Mobile is headed to Madison, Wisconsin this weekend! You can browse the Zine Mobile's collection, participate in an open zine-reading event, and take part in Protest Karaoke! More info on the Zine Mobile's website!
