Reading Frenzy ~ An Independent Press Emporium

Zine Frenzy at Central Library This Month!

May 09, 2008: On Tuesday, May 20th at 6PM zine readers, zine writers, and the zine-curious are invited to the 2nd floor of the Central Library to celebrate the expansion of Multnomah County Library's zine holdings with exciting new titles and browsing collections in three more neighborhood libraries at a Zine Social! Rub elbows with fellow zinesters, partake of light refreshments, and pick up a copy of the latest edition of "PDX Zines: Where to Find Zines in Portland". 

Making Friends the Old Fashioned Way: Through Self Publishing! In this two hour long workshop at Central Library, on May 31st, 2-4PM, participants will be introduced to the what, how and whys of self publishing with local comic artist and zine maven Nicole J. Georges. Focusing in particular on personal zines and diary comics, participants will review examples and get to work on their own personal comic, the beginnings of which will be photocopied and handed out at the end of the day!
