Just Grace is the eight-year-old heroine in series of children’s novels. In Just Grace and the Snack Attack she finds zines,
“At first I was disappointed because it seemed like the whole present was just a piece of paper. But after we looked at it together and she explained it, I was a lot more excited. Augustine Dupre said that the little paper was called a zine, and that zines were popular with people who liked to draw comics and tell stories. People just like me.”
The book also includes a several page-long how-to section for a beginning zinester. Speaking of how-to’s, you can pick up a copy of the How-to Encyclopedia created by local zinesters at the Twin Cities Zine Fest this weekend. More info here.
Don’t miss it. Zinesters know DIY.
Not to mention, I’ll be selling zines there. :)
