Five librarians–two ALA accredited, one credentialed by Australia’s comparable body ALIA, and two rogue–will drive into New Orleans in their Fly-Away Zine Mobile to sprinkle love of zines* as an outlet for do-it-yourself (DIY) culture, creative expression, political rage, and knowledge sharing if all of their beautiful, messy radiance. Librarian zinesters will read from their own work and work from their libraries and might slip into a harangue about the importance of creating, collecting, and preserving alternative points of view, DIY style and of making zines available in libraries, adding them to academic and lay conversations on a tremendous range of topics.
