Tomorrow night. Me. You. The coolest new #diy space in town. I’ll be reading from #DontHideBehindYourSkirt & finding my inner Cher Horowitz. ❤️ #zines #losangeles #love

TONIGHT!!! Hope to see some of y’all tonight at Echo Chamber Creative Headquarters for Storytelling Tuesday - THE PAST. Admission is free, but bring some dough in case you want to buy zines (and you will, because these writers do good work). The lineup begins at 8pm, but you’ll want to show up by 7:45pm to sign up to read your own story after the scheduled readers, if you’re interested. And everybody should show up earlier to take in the glory of the space and to thumb through the L.A. Zine Fest Zine Library onsite. Parking can be tricky on Sunset, so be aware and carpool or take mass transit if able. I have had the honor of performing a higher number of readings this year. The frequency of those or any other public appearances are about to decrease significantly as nesting begins in anticipation of Le Petit Prince, coming to a planet near you this October. It would mean a lot to me if you attend tonight. Thank you.

"The library at Pacific Northwest College of Art ( (PNCA) serves a community of approximately 500 BFA, MFA, and MA students, 200 staff and faculty, continuing education students, and innumerable alumni…
Patrons use the library’s nearly 900-issue circulating zine collection for entertainment, education, and inspiration. Students create zines in PNCA courses, write and publish zines for their theses, and are active in independent publishing. Most of our zines are acquired through donations from their creators or zine collectors. Common themes in our zine collection are comics, art, design, Portland and the Pacific Northwest, feminism, radicalism, GLBTQ topics, pop culture, music, and political activism.”

Oh man, I didn’t even know PNCA had zines! Will totally check that out.

It was Zine Library Day yesterday as part of International Zine Month, so I updated my list of UK zine libraries which I compiled last year.
