Hello Chicago friends!

I wanted to let everyone know I've been organizing the Chicago Zine Fest, which will take place March 12 & 13! All four of the main organizers are vegan, I'm sure a lot of the participating zinesters will be, and a bunch of the businesses that we're reaching out to as donors are vegan-friendly.

Friday the 12th will feature a zine reading at Quimby's bookstore at 7pm, a zine/DIY art show at Johalla gallery from 7-10pm and the Gadabout Film Festival also at Johalla from 10-11.

Saturday the 13th will involve a day of zinesters hawking their wares down at Columbia college's Conaway Center, along with workshops, raffles and a scavenger hunt. That's going on from 10-5pm. I'm pretty sure a concert will happen later that night featuring zinester bands and just hanging out.

It should be tons of fun. I hope VRF folks can make it and check it out. For more info you can visit our website:

woo hoo!
