This weekend, zine lovers will convene at the downtown library for the annual Twin Cities Zine Fest, where 70 creators will be selling, trading, and talking about their independently published zines. Some will be handwritten, some hand drawn, some typed out in a typewriter, and some photocopied with staples. Anything goes, except intolerance, as this zine fest aims to be a safer space for all identities, abilities, and genders. The festivities kick off on Friday evening with a reading held at the Minnesota Center for Book Arts  (1011 Washington Ave. S., Minneapolis). Then, on Saturday, zinesters will have their wares displayed, and there will be workshops and activities throughout the day. Find more details at tczinefest.org.
