The Zine Committee would like to thank everyone that came out to the 2011 Zine Symposium on Saturday. We had a great crowd for the panel discussion and keynote featuring musician, activist and zine author Kathleen Hanna.
We’d like to give a special round of applause to our panelists Shelton Hull, Adee Roberson, Mark Creegan, Travis Fristoe, Kathleen Hanna and moderator Duncan Barlow. Their insights into the creative process and personal experiences were very inspiring.
A special thank you goes out to Kathleen Hanna and her team. We are glad she was able to visit Jacksonville Public Library and we appreciate her willingness to share her experiences and how zines have shaped her activism and career as a musician. It was an excellent and challenging presentation.
Thank you goes out to Clay Doran (Squid Dust) for the wonderful posters. Will there be a second printing? Only he will know for sure.
We’d like to thank everyone that worked on the event and contributed to making it a success, without whom the event could not have happened. Thanks to everyone who spread the word and posted info on blogs, Facebook and Twitter about the event. That was a great help. An especially big thank you goes to out the Community Relations and Marketing team, Adult Programming and the Conference center staff. Thanks for everything!
If you would like to seem more programs like this one, send us your feedback or better yet, checkout some zines from the collection. The library relies on community support and one of the best things you can do is checkout books, CDs, zines, DVDs and other materials in the library. Patron usage and feedback helps us determine future goals for collection development and programming, so please use the library and enjoy what it has to offer.
JPL has some items available for checkout by the above panelists:
Travis Fristoe – America? zine and other writings
We hope to have video of the event available soon!!
