Stop by Quimby’s on September 8th at 7pm to check out the release party of your new favorite journal of oral history and mayhem, The Antelope. Co-founders Elisa Shoenberger and Meghan McGrath have put together a great issue, featuring falconers, beekeepers, swashbuckling Frenchmen, drone hobbyists, space-themed drink recipes, artifacts of early flight, comics, poetry, blimp disasters, and more. This event will include a reading from contributor and fancy sweater-wearer Joe Mason, sharing tales of never-ending sushi, and at least one hot balloon duel. Eric Bartholomew’s famous Junk Drawer zine will make a special appearance, with historical Chicago artifacts galore.
“Elisa and Meghan are quirky and fun scholars interested in oral history and mayhem, and they’ve edited a wonderful magazine.” Quimbys.com
Elisa Shoenberger is a freelance writer who has written for the Boston Globe, Hello Giggles, City Creatures Blog, Curbed Chicago, and others. Meghan McGrath is a wombat enthusiast, community radio DJ, and security ethnographer based in New York.
