Cindy Crabb Reading Was So Wonderful!

We had a wonderful time last week! Lucy Goubert and Cindy Crabb read wonderful things, zines were swapped, people shared things they had written themselves in zines or zines from others that they liked during an open mic time. It was great.

I asked Cindy to do a show n tell of zines that she likes that we have in the collection. She picked:

- The Life and Times of Butch Dykes (series), JD Samson specifically

- Truckface

- Shotgun Seamstress

- Race Riot

- So You Want to Start a Feminist Collective

- Skinned Heart

- Wives’ Tales

She brought a bunch of others to leave out on the merch-ish table for perusing, including Ker-bloom!, All I Want is Everything, Telegram Ma’am, Jane, Sick and Tired of Being Sick and Tired and Figure 8. It was fun to hear her recommendations.

Thanks Cindy, Lucy, and all of you lovely people who came to the event!

Jen Twigg - Tongueswell #1

Jen mostly talks about her Uncle Leslie in this zine. The family lied about how he died, saying it was cancer when it was AIDS. She pursues the truth about him and feels connected to his history as a queer person.

Anonymous - Dear Dudes

This zine contains multiple (unsent) letters from the author to men who she feels have treated her and others badly out of sexism and/or lack of awareness of their male privilege.

Well hello! This is the blog for Carnegie Library of Pittsburgh's zine collection.
