SO WHAT: The Chicago Zine Fest is an annual festival celebrating small press and independent publishers, with free workshops, events, and so much more! This is the second day of the fest which features two great events:

  • Exhibitor Reading (6:00pm – 8:00pm, Quimby’s) – Zine creators share stories and comics from the pages of their publications. Hosted by Megan Kirby. Readers include David Alvarado, Julia Arredondo, Ed Blair, Eileen Chavez, Casey Goonan, Jonas, Jaclyn Miller, LizMarie Palomo, Leslie Perrine, Jami Sailor, and Alejandra Trigoso. Sponsored by Quimby’s Bookstore.
  • Zines Jeopardy (9:00pm, Cards Against Humanity Theater) – Longtime CZF organizer Johnny Misfit hosts our first self-publisher-friendly game show. Our contestants, comics artist John Porcellino and zinemakers Julia Eff and Billy the Bunny, will go head-to-head as we test their knowledge of all things zine. Sponsored by Cards Against Humanity and Field Notes.

NOW WHAT: The exhibition, as all of Chicago Zine Fest events, is free and open to the public!
