July may be International Zine Month, but Future Tenant is extending the love with The Zine Exchange on SATURDAY, AUGUST 24, FROM 6-9 PM. Throughout the evening, zine writers and collectors can participate in the swap meet. At 7 PM, join Jude Vachon, Erin Oh, Lucy Goubert, and Sarah LaPonte for intimate zine readings followed by a Q&A session. This event is free and open to the public.
Can’t make it on Saturday? Select archival pieces will be on display from 1-6 PM ON SUNDAY, AUGUST 25.
Dedicated zinesters Jude Vachon and Erin Oh can be found working at the Carnegie Library Oakland Branch and the Pittsburgh Office of the Mayor, respectively. Formerly of Roup House, Lucy Goubert is active in Pittsburgh’s poetry scene, and Sarah LaPonte often pairs photography with her literary work. Their work with the local zine network—via The Mr. Roboto Project and the Pittsburgh Zine Fair—encourages civic engagement and community interaction while promoting Pittsburgh’s arts and culture movement.
