This Thursday November 11th from 7-8:30 pm is the release party for the Zinesters Guide to New York at the Housing Works Bookstore Cafe! Written by Lower East Side resident and zine-maker Ayun Halliday, the book features art and reviews by some local artists, including myself! The guide has an endorsement from none other than Stephen Colbert, so that alone should be reason to check it out!
There will be live music by The Bushwick Bookclub, a live reading from the guide and a mini zine fair where you can pick up mini comics and zines from the contributors. I'll have some issues of Counter Attack with me (and possibly Urban Nomad 3 if you'd like to pick one up and speak up in the comments). All food and drink purchases benefit Housing Works in the fight against homelessness and AIDS.
Housing Works is located at 126 Crosby St (below Houston)
If you're not in NYC, you can still pick up the book online from Microcosm Publishing, Amazon or Powells. I'm so excited to see how it turned out and hope to see some familiar faces on Thursday!
