We’re kicking off #CZF2018 with a special pre-fest event! Take a tour of the extensive zine collection that is part of DePaul University Library’s Special Collections and Archives. We’ll have the opportunity to peruse a selection of zines from this academic collection and talk with librarians who work with the archive.

DePaul has been collecting zines since 1994 with a focus on Midwestern zines. The library has 18 individual zine collections —thousands of zines! — primarily from the 1980s-2010s. A wide variety of topics are represented including music, politics, incarceration, LGBTQA, personal narratives, comics, fiction, and many more.
Our capacity for this event is very limited, and tickets are first come, first served. If you’d like to attend, don’t wait to get your ticket — we expect this event to sell out quickly.
