Twin Cities Zinefest this weekend!

While the newspaper and book industries are floundering, the self-publishing world of zines appears to be flourishing. The Twin Cities Zine Fest, now in its ninth year, will demonstrate exactly why this is at its daylong showcase of the art form. The event brings in over 60 exhibitors who will welcome guests to shop, trade, and chat with local DIY artists. Do you make your own zines? If you didn’t sign up for a table in time, bring one to share at the free pop-up booth. There will also be demonstrations and info on screen printing for cheap, a release celebration for the Twin Cities Zinefest Encyclopedia, a children’s table, and the Fly Away Zine Mobile, a 1997 Chevy Astro that functions as a free library/skill share boasting over 1,000 zines and a few musical instruments (ukelele anyone?) available to borrow. The festival kicks off on Friday night at a pre-party at Boneshaker Books (2002 23rd Ave. S., Minneapolis), where from 6 to 9 p.m. guests can read zines, enjoy vegan snacks from Josh Ploeg, and meet with fellow enthusiasts.
