Out in the Great American Just-to-the-West-of-Here a confluence of hand-bound booklets and paper craft takes flight. Tucked under the wing of the Easthampton Book Festival is the Flywheel Art Collective’s Pioneer Valley Zine Fest, offering up seemingly limitless zines accompanied by their authors all day long. Several workshops are scheduled for later in the afternoon, as well as talks by activist, photographer and author of Resistance Behind Bars: The Struggles of Incarcerated Women, Vikki Law, and Holyoke-based zinester and author Anne Thalheimer. Oh, and it’s free.
Come say hello and bring us snacks while we hand out crisp copies of April’s Boston Compass!
10am–3pm: Tabling! Come by to browse, buy and trade zines with zinesters around the U.S.
3pm–500pm: Workshops! (complete schedule TBA)
730pm–10pm: Special Speakers Vikki Law and Anne Thalheimer, + live performance by Mal Devisa
