Sep ’19

Which zines inspire you — to create, to dream, to change your life in big or small ways? This month, CHIPRC’s Zine Club is celebrating the titles that provide us with Zinespiration! We’ll also be commemorating Zine Club’s one-year anniversary here at Quimby’s, so please join us for the festivities and, as always, a fun discussion and snacks. Zine newbies and longtime enthusiasts alike are welcome!

CHIPRC’s Zine Club, which is Chicago’s only book club-style event for people who read zines, is produced by Chicago Zine Fest organizer Cynthia E. Hanifin. Thank you to Zine Club member Heather Anacker for suggesting this month’s theme!
