This Weekend Celebrate New Year's Zine

Start off 2015 with New Year's Zine, a reading of local and touring zine writers, Saturday, Jan. 3, at 7pm at Geek Bar Chicago, 1941 W. North Ave.

Zinesters like to have some fun with their readings, so this should be no exception. Local readers include an entertaining lineup featuring Liz Mason (manager at Quimby's Bookstore), Nikki Yowel (coordinator of Self Publishers of Chicago reading series), Jim Joyce (author of Let it Sink zine), Jonas (author of self published novel The Greatest Most Traveling Circus) and Alex Nall (comic contributor to Chicago Literati). Adding to the festivities will be out-of-town readers Julia Eff (whose zine titles include Every Thug Needs a Lady), Adam Gnade and Rust Belt Jesse.

The event is all ages. Donations will be taken in support of the 2015 Chicago Zine Fest. Zines will be on sale from all readers.
