Yesterday I attended the NYC Feminist Zine Fest in Brooklyn. It was inspiring to see many women displaying their work about a myriad of topics. I was glad to see ‘library zines’ right near the entrance. These included Lower East Side Librarian and The Borough is My Library. I must mention a Special Zine Tour Edition from the Lower East Side Librarian zine. This one chronicles a9-city tour during the summer of 2011. Impressive!
Kudos to the event organizers including Kate Angell with whom I serve on an ALA Committee. Kate also publishes My Feminist Friends, a zine with interviews to feminist activists.
In 2009 I attended the NYC Zine Fest and I am looking forward to this year’s festival. See my video with librarians and zinesters Jenna Freedman, Alycia Sellie and Celia Perez speaking about what is a zine, zine collections in the USA and the festival itself.
