Zine Club Chicago IN PERSON: SNAX Release Party + Zinemaking Hangout!
7-9 p.m. Friday, November 18
Quimby’s Bookstore, 1854 W. North Avenue
In November, Zine Club Chicago is gathering in person to celebrate the release of SNAX, its fresh-off-the-presses collab zine! Join us at the bookstore from 7 to 9 p.m. Friday, November 18 to meet some of the awesome SNAX contributors, make fun-sized mini zines with us and, of course, share some snacks!
The SNAX Release Party + Zinemaking Hangout will be Zine Club Chicago’s first in-person event since February 2020 here at Quimby’s. We’re excited to get together with our local friends! We’ll have zinemaking supplies and snacks on hand. Please feel free to bring a treat to share, if you like. Masks are encouraged when you’re not snacking.
SNAX contributors, you’re welcome to pick up your free copy of the zine at the party. We’ll have copies for sale at the shop and on our website, as well.
Online friends, Zine Club Chicago will be back on Zoom with y’all in December to ring out 2022 with an extra fun holiday event! If you’d like to get together virtually with zine friends this month, please join us at Zine Party, hosted by Zine Club Chicago fave Michael Verdi, at 7:30 p.m. CT Tuesday, Nov. 8. For more info and to get the Zoom link, visit zine.party.
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 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. Thank you to SNAX Co-Editor Rachel Hyman for creating our flyer this month!
