In this month dedicated to passion in its many-splendored incarnations, we’re celebrating our zine crushes! If your heart beats faster for the work of a particular zinemaker, publisher, or collaborative, we want to hear about it. That swell of platonic admiration when you spot a new publication from your forever fave is one of the greatest thrills of belonging to the zine community.
Grab the zines that make you swoon, BYOC(onversation)H(earts), and join us on Zoom for Zine Club Chicago Online: Zine Crushes 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. CT Tuesday, Feb. 23. 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/
