In this episode, Jessica Schwartz talks to Ziba Pérez (Young Adult Librarian, Los Angeles Public Library), Yago Cura (bilingual Adult Services Librarian for the Los Angeles Public Library, and owner of the small press HINCHAS), and Lorena Villegas (Young Adult Librarian, Los Angeles Public Library) about the Los Angeles Public Library's Zine Collections and Zine Club. We talk about the importance of non-commercial press, public access and accessibility, creativity, and intergenerational communication. And, our guests share their work!
"The Zine Club members meetup in a virtual space to co-work, chat and share inspiration for whatever projects we're working on. Zine Club is based on the idea of gathering together to create zines, share zines we like, zines that we are working on, music to make zines to, and much more." (On a personal note - Jessica has been going to the LAPL Zine Club, online, since Sept. 2021, and has found community and drawn inspiration from every meeting)
