Zine Club Chicago is kicking off the season of love in all its incarnations with a heart-shaped invitation: Come make zine valentines with us about your self-publishing passions! We want you to pour your admiration for your favorite zinemakers, most beloved art supplies (who doesn’t love a long-arm stapler?), or whatever else you adore about DIY culture into the pages of a mini zine. We’ll also have postcard supplies on hand so you can send a sweet note to our out-of-town zine pals.* Please join us at Zine Club Chicago: Zine Valentines Hangout at 3 p.m. Saturday, January 20 right here at Quimby’s Bookstore, 1854 W. North Avenue in Wicker Park. Free! We’ll provide zinemaking supplies, blank postcards, and snacks. Zine Club Chicago is a mask-supportive environment; we’ll have masks available if you’d like to wear one. *Out-of-town friends, Zine Club Chicago would love to pair you up with a zine pen pal!
