Opening Tuesday, January 25th, at 7:30PM
This month, we’re incredibly excited to hand over our event to the amazing minds behind Meanwhile Chicago, who will bring their unique zinemaking-meets-storytelling show to our little corner of Zoom. Expect thrilling performers, inspiring zine prompts, and the high-spirited fun that only the Meanwhile hosts can generate, all focused on the theme Over the Hill.
Performers will include Aim Beland, Linda Kawano, and Liz Mason & Cynthia E. Hanifin! The Meanwhile crew — Megan Kirby, Catherine Eves, and DJ Williams — will share zinemaking prompts so you can create along at home. All you’ll need is some plain paper and your favorite writing/drawing implement.
Grab your zinemaking supplies, BYOS(nacks), and join us on Zoom for Zine Club Chicago Online x Meanwhile: Over the Hill Edition at 7:30 p.m. CT Tuesday, January 25!
** RSVP required ** 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 email@example.com to RSVP by 9 p.m. CST Monday, Jan. 24 (the day before our event). We’ll email you the Zoom link by 5 p.m. CST on Tuesday, Jan. 25.
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.
