Quote for 2020

"Printed books usually outlive bookstores and the publishers who brought them out. They sit around, demanding nothing, for decades. That's one of their nicest qualities—their brute persistence." - author Nicholson Baker

Zines in Indian Country

 
In the age when people publish instantly on Facebook, Instagram, Tumblr, and their own blogs, it might be difficult to see where zines--low-tech, photocopied, self-published magazines--have a place. But they're still around. You might find them laying around at your local coffee shop or alternative bookstore. The zine publisher might print one out and mail it to you. Kayla Shaggy's (Diné and Anishinaabe) zine, "Monstrous," is filled with drawings of monsters. She says the format offers "the freedom to do what you want." Self-publishing something that people can hold in their hands is part of the reason for doing it. We'll talk with Native zine makers about why self-publishing a few copies with limited reach is their favorite way to get their creative work out.
