If librarians in roving vehicles makes you think of bookmobiles parked on corners of dusty country roads, think again. Come listen to librarians read from their various zine projects when they roll into town as part of a nine-city zine-reading tour kicked off at the American Library Association’s Annual Conference in New Orleans and wrapping up at the Zine Librarian (un)Conference in Milwaukee. The Fly Away Zine Mobile, a traveling library focused on zines and other forms of DIY publishing, will be present to help spread the zine love!
Tour participants are Jenna Freedman (Lower East Side Librarian and Barnard Zine Collection); Jami Sailor (Your Secretary and Archiving the Underground); John Stevens (Dilettantes and Heartless Manipulators and Blue Floral Gusset); Celia Perez (I Dreamed I Was Assertive and Atlas of Childhood); and Debbie Rasmussen, former publisher of Bitch: Feminist Response to Popular Culture, with her latest project the Fly Away Zine Mobile.
