Per an email from the organizers of the Brooklyn Zine Fest:

Dust off your zine descriptions and start remembering how to spell your own name, because the Brooklyn Zine Fest 2013 Exhibitor Application is opening in one week on Thursday, January 3rd!

Among a lovely donation of zines from Naima Coster, we received a copy of Readin' & Fightin': Insisting on Literature by Women of Color by Camille, a recent college graduate who lamented what was missing from her history and literature education. She decided to read only books by other women of color and then created a bibliography project out of it, which ultimately became a zine (Zines 3655r no. 1 2009?) and a blog.
