CHIPRC’s Zine Club at Chicago Zine Fest 2019: Baby’s First Zine Edition!
Sat, May 18th, 4:30-5:30pm
Chicago Zine Fest Exhibition Day at Plumbers Union Hall, 1340 W. Washington Blvd. in the West Loop
We’re bringing Chicago’s only book club-style event for people who read zines to CZF2019! This month, we’ll be talking about our early steps into the world of zines. Bring one of the first zines you made or read and join us at Chicago Zine Fest’s Exhibition Day for a fun discussion and snacks!
Zine newbies and longtime enthusiasts are welcome. First 25 attendees will receive a special-edition Chicago Zine Fest notebook!
This event is produced by Chicago Zine Fest organizer Cynthia E. Hanifin. Sponsored by Quimby’s Bookstore, which is proud to be sponsor of CZF.
Quimby’s is proud to welcome back tarot readings by Sarah Luczko. Sarah is a poet, dancer, performance artist, bookstore owner, and Tarot reader. Her readings are down to earth, while still keeping one foot in the other world. Sarah works with querents to produce a reading through collaboration with the cards. She embraces the traveling tradition of party readings. She prefers to read in loud bars, outdoors, in a garden, at art openings, or anywhere away from more traditional settings.
