One Year Party is TWO DAYS AWAY!

SPOC1Year

Disturbing yet jovial poster design by our own Grant Reynolds.

In a mere TWO DAYS, Self-Publishers of Chicago celebrates its first year of life. To celebrate, we’re eating Funfetti cake, drinking a variety of beveragery and, oh yeah, we’re having some readers too.

The action goes down from 7-9 p.m. on Friday, April 26 at Uncharted Books in Logan Square. 

Among the talented folks:

Eric Bartholomew of Junk Drawer will regale us with an interactive survey of junk items the world over.

Meghan McGrath will bring back the glory of our Fire Dog zine with an informative and entertaining fire dog career booth and performance.

Jonas Cannon, likely clad in an amazing chapeau, will read his not-so-haunted tale from Ghostly Stories.

Grant Reynolds has a brand new SPOC theme for us which will be accompanied by a resplendent slideshow.

Jen Twigg clues us in on the finer points of both running Chicago Zine Fest and being an amazing educator.

Elizabeth Tieri of the Back to Print publishing house reads her poem from Ghostly Stories. It was about a black light poster, folks.

Nicki Yowell will be giving the State of the SPOC address complete with a not-to-be-missed performance of pantomime, song and improvisation.

TOMORROW at 8 p.m. we’ll be getting ready for the action at Nicki’s by baking and frosting cakes, fine-tuning performances and making decorations. E-mail selfpublishersofchicago@gmail for more info.
