This Tuesday will be an exciting day for New Yorkers who love zines, as the long-awaited Brooklyn College Zine Collection is officially opening! The collection was started in 2011 by Brooklyn College librarian Alycia Sellie and primarily features zines that are connected to Brooklyn (specific collection parameters available here).
Tuesday’s celebration is open to the public and will feature readings by Brooklyn College students and Brooklyn zinesters (including my zine buddies Elvis Bakaitis and Kate Wadkins). I’ll be reading from my zine “My Feminist Friends” and am especially pleased because my first academic library internship ever was at Brooklyn College!
More info about the event is available in the press release.
