Even Just Grace likes zines, or Zinefest 2011

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.  :)
