Zine Club Chicago Online: Pandemic Zines Edition
7:30 p.m. CST Tuesday, February 22 on Zoom
Two years ago, the World Health Organization declared the COVID-19 outbreak to be a global health emergency, forever changing the world as we knew it. During these pandemic times, many people have turned to zinemaking as a way to share their experiences, their knowledge, their fears, and their resilience.
This month, we’ll be discussing zines that focus on life in the era of COVID-19, including perzines, mini-comics, how-to guides and more. Grab your faves, BYOS(nacks), and join us on Zoom for Zine Club Chicago Online: Pandemic Zines Edition at 7:30 p.m. CST Tuesday, February 22!
** RSVP required ** We want to make sure that our online Zine Club events are a safe space, so we won’t be releasing the Zoom link publicly. If you’d like to attend, please email firstname.lastname@example.org to RSVP by 9 p.m. CST Monday, Feb. 21 (the day before our event). We’ll email you the Zoom link by 5 p.m. CST on Tuesday, Feb. 22.
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 Cynthia E. Hanifin and sponsored by Quimby’s Bookstore. Anna Jo Beck designs the group’s monthly flyers, created its logo, and made the Zine Club Chicago Shout-Outs site, where folks can peruse and recommend zines.
