Event Description

Join us in this hands-on introduction to the wonderful world of zines!  Zines are pamphlets which are self-made and distributed - with content including comics, recipes, political discourse, research, or personal stories.  Kelly Wooten, women's history archivist from Duke University Libraries, will give a brief history of zines (pronounced "zeenz"), before guiding participants through making their own zine to take home. Participants from all backgrounds and disciplines are encouraged to participate - all materials will be provided. Registration required.
