June 2012 Salon: Zines!

191 Highland Ave. , Somerville

You are here

Zines! Featuring talks by Somerville zinesters Marissa Falco and Alana Kumbier; a visit from Papercut Zine Library; and a zine swap. Organized by Tim Devin.
There’s been a renewed interest in zines lately, and the Boston area has become a hotbed of activity. Join us for “Zines!,” when the Somerville Salon turns its laser beam towards the Somerville zine scene.
Long-term personal zine creator Marissa Falco will discuss how her recent zine projects have been shaped by journalism and design training. Librarian and author Alana Kumbier talk about how zines can help build communities around libraries and archives, based on her experience with zine-librarianship at Wellesley College and her participation in the Queer Zine Archive Project.
As an added bonus, Papercut Zine Library will have a table, and…we’ll have a zine swap! Bring along a few copies of your zine!
