7:30 p.m. CST Tuesday, January 19 on Zoom
Some people meticulously catalogue their zines, while others toss them in random piles; for many of us, the ways we keep our zines fall someplace in between. This month, we’ll be discussing how we live with the zines we choose to bring home with us. Some of our favorite collectors will be showing us their stacks, and you’re invited to show off — or just talk about — your personal zine organizing system, too.
Get your collection in order (or leave it messy), BYOS(nacks), and join us on Zoom for Zine Club Chicago Online: Show Us Your Stacks Edition!
** Zoom info ** 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 5:30 p.m. CST Tuesday, Jan. 19. We’ll email you the Zoom link one hour before the event begins.
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 Chicago Zine Fest/Midwest Perzine Fest organizer Cynthia E. Hanifin and sponsored by Quimby’s Bookstore. Anna Jo Beck designs our monthly flyers, created our logo, and made our Zine Club Chicago Shout-Outs site, where folks can peruse and recommend zines we’ve discussed at our events: https://zineclubchicagoshoutouts.spread.name/
