Linebaugh Zine Collection poster

Reading at Linebaugh and spending time with zine librarian Jerianne Thompson and her family was a double treat.

  • the audience was an interesting mix of the kind of folks who more ordinarily attend public library programs, local zine aficionados, a librarian who drove over from Nashville on company time, and some friends of Debbie’s
  • we got to see the library’s zine collection
  • we got to see Zine World headquarters and meet a 6-year-old science fiction geek in training
  • had a neat conversation about zine union catalog ideas with a local coder
  • Debbie was pre-enamored of Tennessee and not disappointed
  • debriefing that night with Denny & Jerianne–one of the most enjoyable evenings of the tour
  • John got to experience Cracker Barrel (he seems unimpressed with the southern phenomenon that is grits and was baffled by the whipped cream that was heaped generously on his pancakes)
  • postcards from Walgreens
