Print and Resist Zinefest

Exciting news for all zine enthusiasts and creators! The Madison Central Library is set to host the much-anticipated “Print and Resist Zinefest” on April 27th, from 11 am to 4 pm. This event is a celebration of the DIY spirit and the analog printed word, bringing together a community that cherishes self-expression through self-published magazines, known as zines.

At the heart of this fest are the contributing artists, including the talented Julie Sabo, Mike Ward, and Beth Hetland, who will be showcasing their unique creations. Their work, along with that of many other zinesters, highlights the diversity and vibrancy of the zine culture, offering attendees a glimpse into the wide range of themes and styles that zines cover.

Carlee Latimer, the Bubbler Program Administrator for the Madison Public Library, plays a pivotal role in bringing this event to life. The “Print and Resist Zinefest” is part of the Madison Public Library’s Bubbler program, which is dedicated to creating interactive learning experiences and fostering community engagement through the arts.

The fest is not only an opportunity for zine lovers to meet and share their passion but also a platform for new voices to be heard and discovered. Whether you’re a seasoned zinester or new to the world of DIY publishing, there’s something for everyone at this fest.

For those interested in attending, the event poster and additional details can be found on the Madison Print and Resist Zinefest website. Don’t miss this chance to be part of a vibrant day celebrating creativity, community, and the power of the printed word. See you at the Zinefest!
