Quimby’s is proud to co-sponsor the 2022 Midwest Perzine Fest, which is Saturday, October 8th at Columbia College’s Conaway Center, at 1104 S Wabash Avenue, 10 am to 4 pm! Make sure to stop by our table to say hi!
What’s a perzine? Perzine is a genre of zine. It is short for “personal zine” and is often a self-identified term used by zinesters to describe their zines written about their own personal thoughts, stories, or experiences and can be of a confessional nature. But perzines are not limited to discussions of emotions; they can also explore topics of interest or interactions with hobbies or travel experiences.

Still in town on Sunday afternoon? As a post-MWPZF event, Zine Club Chicago and Quimby’s invite you to join us for coffee and cookies. Come here to Quimby’s (1854 W. North Ave) at noon, Sunday, October 9th, to hang out with your zine friends. Feel free to leave items you want to consign (though we will not be able to do payouts due to how busy we will be or check stock levels). We can’t wait to see you all during MWPZF weekend!
