Spring is a time when we honor all that our planet provides for us, so we’re celebrating the earth by exploring zines about going green in every sense of the phrase! This month at our book club-style event for people who read zines, we’ll be talking about our favorite titles that focus on nature, from plants and animals to outdoor adventures and climate justice. Zine newbies and longtime enthusiasts alike are welcome to join us for a fun discussion and snacks.

If you’d like to participate in our Mystery Zine Swap, bring a zine (concealed in some way) to trade with someone else on the spot!

This event is produced by Chicago Zine Fest organizer Cynthia E. Hanifin. Thank you to CZC member Anna Jo Beck for designing this month’s beautifully verdant flyer!

CHIPRC’s Zine Club: DIY Edition

THIS MONTH’S ZINE CLUB MEETING IS AT A SPECIAL LOCATION, NOT AT QUIMBY’S! It’s at Pumping Station: One is at 3519 N. Elston Ave.

This February, Zine Club takes a field trip to Pumping Station: One in Avondale, Chicago’s oldest and largest hackerspace!

We’ll be discussing DIY zines that teach and inspire readers to do it yourself. Bring your favorite titles that instruct us on how you can make, design, build, create, tinker, and hack anything! Zine newbies and longtime enthusiasts alike are welcome to join us for a fun discussion and snacks.

We’ll also be taking a short tour of Pumping Station: One to see all the tools and members working on projects, to serve as inspiration for your next venture.

We have a Mystery Zine Swap every month! If you’d like to participate, bring a zine (concealed in some way) to trade with someone else on the spot.

This free event will be led by PS1 member (and Zine Club regular) Mariano Muñoz and Chicago Zine Fest organizer Cynthia E. Hanifin.

If you’re planning to attend, you’ll need to digitally sign Pumping Station: One’s waiver either in advance or when you arrive at the hackerspace: bit.ly/2IWwdV5

We’ve all got white elephants in our zine collection — titles that stand out because they’re wacky, unusual, or simply defy classification. This month at our book club-style event for people who read zines, we’ll be talking about the most out-there zines we’ve acquired. Zine newbies and longtime enthusiasts alike are welcome to join us for a fun discussion and snacks.

We’re turning our Mystery Zine Swap into a White Elephant Exchange this month, too. Bring a zine (concealed in some way) and get in on the unwrapping, swapping, and stealing!

This event will be led by Chicago Zine Fest organizer Cynthia E. Hanifin.
