zine readings

The Anchor Archive Zine Library is re-opening this Thursday! 

Pete's mini zine fest is coming up - and it's ALL OVER THE INTERTRONS.

You know the feeling of emptiness that you get immediately after finishing a good read? I heard someone refer to that as a "book hangover" once and thought that was a pretty great name for the feeling.

Today's zine is one of those personal zines that will give you a "book hangover" at the end. (Take note that this highly recommended zine comes with a trigger warning). Malcriada is a well-written and very personal story of surviving childhood sexual abuse. The author also writes about her difficulty she experiences with her Latina identity while living in a culture that demands assimilation.

We're having a belated Zine Library Day event here at Barnard Library on Wednesday, July 31st from 11-5.

There will be a Zine Reading at 2:00, and Zinedora (like Pandora, but for zines) recommendation booths all day. The event is held in colaboration with the POC Zine Project.

Come get some vegan snax and make zines with us. And keep an eye out for our neon colored posters! You literally can't miss them.

Speaking of Mimi Thi Nguyen, she'll be doing a zine reading the day after Refashioning Race, Gender, and Economy. Info on her zine reading can be found here.

There's a Feminist Zine Reading at Bluestockings featuring our zine assistant Jordan Alam and our libary school intern Elvis Bakaitis! Both are prolific and excellent zinesters. Click for more for info and check out the Facebook Event.

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!

The collective mobile zine project Cross Pollinate is looking for your participation in their show and tell zine tour. The central mission of Cross Pollinate is to create spaces and communities across the country for people to exchange wisdom, skills, ideas, and art. Participation in this tour may entail traveling in the zine mobile, contributing to Cross Pollinate's project at their local stops, organizing local events, and hosting tourmates in your home.  Though their exact route is not explicity planned, they shall venture out from California in the last week of June, head up through the West Coast, then eventually land in Nebraska in early August. They are still open for potential destinations, hosts, and organizers across the country. Cross Pollinate is especially interested in bringing their project to marginialized areas such as international communities, land projects, small towns and rural areas, and wheel-chair accessible venues.
