I’m attending the annual American Library Association conference this year in New Orleans, and already I know a major highlight of the trip will be checking out Orderly Disorder: Zinester Librarians Tour! You hear about bands going on tour all the time, but seriously, how cool and special is a tour of zine librarians?!
According to their website, the zine librarians will be presenting in 9 cities, beginning on June 26 at Tulane University’s Nadine Vorhoff Library and ending on July 7 at The Tool Shed in Milwaukee. Core participants are Jenna Freedman, Celia Perez, Debbie Rasmussen (and her Zine Mobile), Jami Sailor, and John Stevens.
Seriously, if you or any of your zine-loving friends are going to be in any of the cities they’re presenting in, I definitely encourage attending! I’ve read zines by Jenna Freedman (Lower East Side Librarian Winter Solstice Shout Out) and Celia Perez (I Dreamed I Was Assertive) and will gladly vouch for their awesomeness.
