NYPL Loves Zines and Zines Love NYPL
Fall into zines and head over to Pete's Mini Zinefest this Sunday, September 25, from 2 to 7 p.m. — you'll help support the Library too! I recently met Andria Alefhi, an organizer of the zinefest event, when NYPL added her wonderful zine, We'll Never Have Paris, to the its landmark zine collection. I was so moved when Alefhi told me her idea to donate part of the zinefest proceeds to NYPL.
Since zines are frequently distributed by creators through exchange, trade, and zinefests, building community and sharing in this way is an integral part of the zine experience. I'm thrilled NYPL can be a part of it! Over 20 writers and comic artists will showcase their books and zines at Pete's Candy Store on Sunday, September 25, from 2 to 7 p.m. The zinefest kicks off Saturday evening, September 24, from 6 to 9 p.m., with readings by participants. You can also find the zinefest on Facebook.
