Offsite: Whiskers + Writers + Whiskey at Windy Kitty Cat Café on 6/28

Jun ’19
7:00 pm

Celebrate June as National Adopt a Cat Month! In honor of this special month, don’t miss this a night of zinesters, cats & refreshments at the Windy Kitty Cat Café (1746 W. North Ave), just two blocks east of Quimby’s — in a night we’re calling Whiskers + Writers + Whiskey. The fine folks there save orphan kittens, abandoned or stray cats and mama cats with kittens, looking to find homes by offering them for adoption.

Tickets to this special event are $25 and can be purchased at this link. ** Please book in advance as walk-Ins are not permitted **

Join these zinesters for cat-themed readings amongst feline friends:

Anne Elizabeth Moore + Sara McHenry + Jonas + Cynthia Hanifin

About the readers:

Anne Elizabeth Moore is the author of books including Body Horror, Threadbare, Cambodian Grrrl and Unmarketable. She has two ineffective feline personal assistants, Thurber and Captain America.

Sara McHenry is a cartoonist, writer, and lifelong cat. She publishes the zine Hard to Love and has been drawing cat comics since 2006. Your McHenries

Jonas writes mostly zines with names like We the Drowned, Fixer Eraser and Cheer the Eff Up. He has also written a book of fiction called The Greatest Most Traveling Circus. @FixerEraser

Cynthia Hanifin is a social worker, writer, zinemaker, and storyteller. She is a Chicago Zine Fest organizer and a co-producer for Story Club South Side. @Cynthia_MSW
