LJ reading at ABC No Rio

LJ reading at ABC No Rio

Several weeks ago (time is going too fast!) there was a zine reading at ABC No Rio as part of their "Art of Zines" show. It was pretty awesome to hear some old school zinesters like LJ and Elissa Nelson read. I thought about how not only had I started reading their zines about 10 years ago, but how amazing it is that we have become friends. There has been a small amount of zine activity around the city lately (I taught a workshop and attended a reading at Think Coffee the week previous) and I find that so interesting and important. Even though I'm not always sure what the power of zines are in the digital age, I know they have power. Seeing all the zines also motivated me to finally finish a new one. It's going to be about art (big suprise) and especially about art I hate (nothing like a good rant for a zine, right?).
