FREE: Brooklyn Zine Fest at Public Assembly
Zine publishers Matt Carman and Kseniya Yarosh are heading back to Williamsburg to host the 2nd Annual Brooklyn Zine Fest at Public Assembly. The event which has expanded their lineup of writers, artists and publishers, will take place on Sunday, April 21st from 11am-6pm. Admission is FREE!
“Last year we proved that tons of people still want to turn a real page when they read something. Zines take time to create, so a lot of care goes into these publications,” said Carman. “New Yorkers really respond to that level of dedication and interest. This is the only place in the world where every single idea can find its audience, no matter how niche or off-kilter.”
Women and ostracized publications will be heavily showcased at the Brooklyn Zine Fest including Womanimalistic, Homos in Herstory, and of course, the DIY food zine The Runcible Spoon which has been featured in The New York Times.
The event is open to all ages, but for those of you old enough to drink you’ll be happy to know that Public Assembly’s bar will be open and offering specials for all guests 21 and over from sponsor Brooklyn Brewery.
Once the main event is done be sure to stick around. In the Back Room of Public Assembly at 7pm, Chicago-based artist and Brooklyn Zine Fest exhibitor Lyra Hill will debut her live comics and art performance Brain Frame in New York. Expect to witness artists act out their work on stage, puppets, props, soundscapes and more!
