If you’re in Chicago on Friday January 30th, 2015, you’ll want to attend this fun, informative event coordinated with the 2015 American Library Association Midwinter conference:
Thinking about Organizing a Zine or Comics Event?
Join fellow librarians and zine enthusiasts at the legendaryÂ Quimby’s Bookstore to discuss running a successful zine or comics event â€“ whether it’s a one-hour DIY workshop for teens or a festival with thousands of attendees. Librarians, zinesters, and comics makers will share stories and tips about developing community through events, and then open the floor to your questions. After the event (and time for browsing) weâ€™ll head around the corner toÂ Dimoâ€™s for pizza.
This event is free and open to the public–we encourage anyone interested who loves zines or libraries to attend!
When: Friday January 30th, 2015, 7 pm
Where: Quimby’s Bookstore, 854 W North Ave, Chicago IL Â 60622Â (near the Damen blue line LÂ stop)
