Zine Club Chicago Online: Zine Bingo Edition, April 20th

7:30 pm


Zine Club Chicago Online: Zine Bingo Edition

7:30 p.m. CDT Tuesday, April 20 on Zoom


Please note that we will need to receive your RSVP by 9 p.m. Monday, April 19 (the day BEFORE our event).

This month, we’re shaking up our usual format to play Zine Bingo! Our twist on the classic game will give everyone an opportunity to go on a scavenger hunt through your own zine collections.

Check out our bingo card, grab your zines, BYOS(nacks) and join us on Zoom for Zine Club Chicago Online: Zine Bingo Edition at 7:30 p.m. CDT Tuesday, April 20!

Here’s how our version of Zine Bingo will work: We’ve created this zine-centric bingo card here! We’ll all be using the same card for the game; feel free to print it out or download it. Each box on the card represents a category of zines that you might have in your collection; for example, a how-to zine or a zine about cats.

Before we meet, search your collection and find a zine that corresponds to a category in one box from each vertical row on the card. The rows are marked with the letters Z-I-N-E-S. Each box also has a number in the corner. (Y’all are welcome to bring zines that correspond to more or fewer than one box per row, or to not bring zines at all and join us just to hang out.)

During our event, we’ll randomly pull bingo balls marked with the letter and number of each box on the bingo card. Folks with a zine that fits the category in the box we’ve called will then tell us about the zine they brought. We’ll keep going until we get a collective bingo! (Everyone is a winner at Zine Club Chicago).

** Zoom info ** We want to make sure that our online events are a safe space, so we won’t be releasing the Zoom link publicly. Please note that the deadline to RSVP is changing this month!

If you’d like to attend, please email to RSVP by 9 p.m. CDT Monday, April 19 (the day before our event). We’ll email you the Zoom link by 11 p.m. CDT on 4/19. While we will do our best to accommodate any RSVPs that come in late, the only way to make sure you’ll get the Zoom link is to email us by the deadline.

Zine newbies and longtime enthusiasts alike are always welcome at Zine Club Chicago, the city’s only book club-style event for people who read zines. This free monthly series is produced by Chicago Zine Fest/Midwest Perzine Fest organizer Cynthia E. Hanifin and sponsored by Quimby’s Bookstore. Anna Jo Beck designs our monthly flyers, created our logo, and made our Zine Club Chicago Shout-Outs site, where folks can peruse and recommend zines we’ve discussed at our events:
