Chicago Zine Fest

With all the recent speculation about the death of print media, it’s a pleasure to see that the annual Chicago Zine Fest will take place this weekend at Plumbers Hall, just west of downtown. That’s the same building where the CHIRP Record Fair And Other Delights was held a few weeks back. Over 250 exhibitors will be on hand; displaying magazines, self-published books, and comics that cover a wide range of subject matter. There will be workshops and activities for kids as well as adults.

The actual exhibition runs from 11:00 AM to 6:00 PM on Saturday, and there are two panel discussions on Friday night. At 6:30 PM, Monika Harris will moderate the 90-minute Permission Not Granted: Women Of Color and the Politics of Zines featuring Leila Abdelrazaq, Sarah Gonzalez, and Monika Harris. From 8:00 PM to 9:30 PM, Andi Santagata, JC, Jonas, Marnie Galloway, Rachel and Sara, Taryn Hipp, Tanja Jagernauth, and Vicky Lim will take part in a CZF Exhibitor Reading. Admission is free for Chicago Zine Fest and Plumbers Hall is wheelchair accessible.
