July is International Zine Month! CHIPRC’s Zine Club is commemorating this global celebration of self-publishing with an exploration of zines from other countries. Bring your favorite titles from outside the United States and join us for a fun discussion and snacks at Chicago’s only book club-style event for people who read zines. Zine newbies and longtime enthusiasts alike are welcome!
* Please note that we’re meeting on a Thursday evening this month. *
Looking for more ways to celebrate #IZF2019? Check out this cool calendar of daily activities created by Alex Wrekk of Portland Button Works and Zine Distro:
Since July 18 is IZF’s Zine Trade Day, we’re putting a fun spin on our usual Mystery Zine Swap. Please bring a zine to trade, concealed in some way, and write a one-sentence description (without using the title or zinemaker’s name) on the wrapping. Then we’ll match up folks with the description that appeals most to them. Think of it as speed dating – but for zines and readers. 🙂
