July 29:Â Field trip to School of Museum of Fine Arts (Tufts) Library. This is literally across the street from Simmons. The tour will be lead by Darin Murphy,Â Head of W. Van Alan Clark Library. He will be showing rare, one-of-a-kind artists’ books and zines made by students and community members.
July 30: Â Field trip to the Papercut Zine LibraryÂ . Tour will be led by Sarah Ruggiero, Volunteer Librarian. Not only will you get a chance to read zines and hang out but Sarah has arranged a zine reading with local zinesters as well.
