Zine Collections to visit
A field trip to UCLA’s zine collections is currently being planned for the evening of Thursday, August 3rd. Stay tuned!
LA has several bookstores that sell zines. Seite and Ooga BoogaÂ are both accessible by bus or car. If you’re up for a long train ride, Skylight Books in the Los Feliz neighborhood of Los Angeles is a fun bookstore with a small zine section. From Long Beach, take the Metro blue line, transfer at 7th St. Station to the red line–North Hollywood, and get off at Vermont/Santa Monica.
Fun Stuff to Do
Long Beach Zine Fest 2017 is happening Sunday August 6th, the day after #ZLuC!! Be sure to stop by the third annual LBZF from 11 am-5 pm at Long Beach’s Museum of Latin American Art.
Speaking of which, the Museum of Latin American Art is located a little over a mile from the Long Beach Public Library. To get there, head east on Ocean Blvd., then make a left on Alamitos. The museum is at the corner of Alamitos and 7th.
If you feel like taking the Metro blue line to downtown LA, you can visit the Last Bookstore (a huge new and used bookstore and venue for the first-ever LA Zine Fest in 2012), the Broad Museum (pronounced “Brode,” a new art museum everyone in LA is wetting themselves over), the Museum of Contemporary Art (what it sounds like), or numerous ultra-hip coffee shops and restaurants.
