CHIPRC is closing, so Zine Zine Club is moving to Quimby’s for the September meeting!
Long before the Internet was a thing, far-flung zinesters exchanged zines via postal mail. For many of us, the thrill of finding zines in our mailbox is just as potent as ever.
This month the book club-style event for people who read zines will be talking about zines received in the mail. Zine newbies and longtime enthusiasts alike are invited to bring your favorite titles that you’ve bought or traded online from an individual zinemaker, distro, or zine shop. BYOZ and join the discussion about which zines are worth paying extra for postage!
There will also be a Blind Zine Swap, so please bring a zine (wrapped up or concealed in some way) to trade with someone else on the spot this month.
This event will be led by Chicago Zine Fest organizer Cynthia Elizabeth Hanifin.
Tuesday, September 11th, 6:30pm
Here’s the Facebook invite for this event!
