Zine Club Chicago: Bodies on the Page

This month, we’re excited to welcome five of our favorite local #zinemakers for a panel and #zinemaking workshop! Moderator Jamie Kadas @curvygirlcomics and panelists Katie Armentrout @karmatrout, Jude R. Bettridge @hey_jude_1118, Megan Kirby @dweebulous, and Andrea Pearson @saturn2169 will discuss how they explore experiences and emotions regarding their own bodies in their work. A generative workshop for folks who’d like to make a #zine about their own bodies will follow the panel. Join us in person for Zine Club Chicago: Bodies on the Page Panel + Zinemaking Workshop, 3 p.m. Sunday, Nov. 19 at @quimbysbookstore, 1854 W. North Avenue in Wicker Park. Free! We’ll supply all the zinemaking materials and provide a list of prompts, and also will have snacks on hand, as always! Please note that our discussion will include words and images that are appropriate for folks 18 and older only. Zine Club Chicago is a mask-supportive environment; we’ll have masks available if you’d like to wear one. Online friends, we’ll be back on Zoom with y’all in December for a year-end celebration of zinemaking! More info coming soon. Zine newbies and longtime enthusiasts alike are always welcome at #ZineClubChicago. This free monthly event series is produced by Cynthia E. Hanifin @exilefromguyville and sponsored by Quimby’s Bookstore. Anna Jo Beck @annajobeck designs our monthly flyers, created our logo, and made our Zine Club Chicago Shout-Outs site, where folks can peruse and recommend #zines we’ve discussed at our events.
