Quimby’s is proud to team up with the organizers of Learnapalooza, a free, day-long neighborhood festival happening on June 19, 2010 in the Wicker Park neighborhood of Chicago where community members, both businesses and residents, will exchange skills with one another. Anyone who has anything to share – and basically we all do – can offer a workshop. The idea is to provide a fun and free way for neighbors to share their passions and for everyone to learn new skills. The organizers of the festival hope that all attendees will realize how much they have to teach and learn from others.
Of course Quimby’s is participating! We’re offering three workshops about how to get involved in independent publishing, since that’s of course what we’re known for. Each of our workshops are 45 minutes long, and they’re at 2:00, 3:00 and 4:00 that day. There are workshops in a variety of places, and we hope that you’ll stop in to Quimby’s to attend our portion of the ‘palooza! You are of course welcome to come in on the day of as a walk-in, but if you RSVP to tell us ya think you might make it, we’d appreciate it so we know how many people to expect.
