We wanted to know how zine makers feel about our library making copies of their zines or portions of their zines for remote researchers and prison inmates, so we made a survey. If you make a zine now or have done so in the past, would you consider filling out the survey for us? It should take fewer than five minutes of your time. The survey will close on Wednesday, August 28th, 2013.

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.
