The Zine Librarian unConference planning committee is happy to announce the dates for ZLuC 2018 in Minneapolis:Â July 12-14.Â We have so much exciting stuff that we couldn’t limit ourselves to two days!Â
The plan (so far…):
- Thursday July 12 (starting around 1 pm-ish?) we’ll have a half day of ZLuC at MCTC (Minneapolis Community and Technical College). MCTC’s library has a huge zine collection and a zine lounge area! A potential field trip that evening will be the Walker Art CenterÂ (free on Thursday evenings).
- Friday July 13 we’ll have a full day of ZLuC at the University of Minnesota Twin Cities. The UMN Libraries holds the incredible Marshall Weber Culture Wars Zine Collection. We’ll likely have a mixer that evening.
- Saturday July 14 we’ll have another half day to wrap up ZLuC at the Hennepin County Library’s beautiful Minneapolis Central Library. HCL is in the process of ramping up their zine collection and will be the host of this year’s Twin Cities Zine Fest in September. We hope to have another social event that evening, perhaps a zine reading.
All three locations are within central Minneapolis and easily accessible by public transit. (Here’s a map!) UMN dorm rooms will be available for reservation starting April 1st, with a cost of $61 per person, per day (tax included) for a private room, andÂ $46 per person, per day (tax included) for a shared room. We’ll also have a limited number of couches/guest rooms to offer.
We know no days/time will work for everyone, but hopefully many people can attend one, two, or all three days of ZLuC 2018. Registration, as always, is free. More details will follow this spring!
