Jan

7:00 pm

From the punk fanzines of the ’70s and the Riot Grrrl manifestoes of the ’90s to current titles that span the dial from Britney Spears to underground hip-hop, zines have always explored the soundtracks of our lives. This month at our book club-style event for people who read zines, we’ll be talking about our favorite titles that delve into the expansive world of music. 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 will be led by Chicago Zine Fest organizer Cynthia E. Hanifin.

Tues, Jan 22nd, 7pm – Free Event.

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.

This month at our book club-style event for people who read zines, we’ll be talking about the titles that send chills down our spines. Please BYOZ (Bring Your Own Zines) that get you into the Halloween spirit, and join us for a fun discussion! Zine newbies and longtime enthusiasts alike are welcome.

We’ll have some treats (and possibly a trick or two) for everyone, as well! Our Mystery Zine Swap was so popular last month that we’re making it a regular thing. If you’d like to participate, bring a zine (wrapped up or concealed in some way) to trade with someone else on the spot.
