THIS SUNDAY…

Since its debut at AIR: Artists Image Resource in 2011, the PZF has attracted a diverse group of artists, writers and activists from across the region whose content may vary but the format remains the same- the zine. An icon of DIY ethos and radical info sharing, the zine decentralizes media and vaults individual expression while remaining inexpensive.

As usual, Karen Lillis will be there with “a selection of small press books, recommended reads, feminist fiction, LGBT lit, African American authors, fiction in translation, counterculture reads, blank books, & more!”

Karen Lillis says,

It’s that time of year again, the Seventh Annual Pittsburgh Zine Fair is tomorrow, Sunday afternoon, September 24th. Over sixty (60+) vendors will pop up at the Union Project in Highland Park/Pittsburgh, and I’ll be there with zines, micro press, and small press literature selections. I’m also recreating last year’s success, the Memoir Table. Please come browse! There are so many cool artists, writers, librarians, & booksellers to take in. This vibrant event is free and includes FOOD TRUCKS.

TODAY at 5pm, Jason Baldinger & John Menesini will perform poems for the living & the dead. If you can find “a large cross & a large shade tree overlooking Forbes Ave.” you can find them.

Karen Lillis says,

The Small Press Pittsburgh bookstand will be at the Pittsburgh Zine Fair next Sunday Sept 28 from 2-8pm (Highland Park). Lots of new books, including a section of Feminist Fiction!

Other usual suspect vendors include Nate McDonough, Andy Scott, Natty Soltesz, Nils Balls, Copacetic Comics, & The Gourd.

& since the Zine Fair goes til 8, you don’t even need to choose between these two fine investments of your time.

UPDATE

To avoid driving all over the place looking for the necromancers:

corner of s. dallas and forbes in squill. Parking on aylesboro. there is really only one hill in smithfield and were reading at the top of it, big tree, big irish cross and a roundabout and you are in the right spot.

You people aren’t buying enough (Six Gallery) books from Karen Lillis. Fortunately you have two chances before the end of the month to make it right. This one is TODAY

& this one is on Friday – Karen & the books will be somewhere highly visible on Liberty Avenue. If you still don’t know what this all is, here’s Marc Schuster’s interview with Karen from last month, in which she explains it all.

UPDATE 9/27: Karen & the books will be (or are already) OUTSIDE THE TOONSEUM.
