Are you looking for new zines or old favorites to read in Richmond this summer? We’re lucky to have three (that I know of) local places that appreciate and collect zines–The Flying Brick, VCU Libraries’ Special Collection & Archives department at James Branch Cabell Library, and now The Wingnut Radical Lending Library.

Last but not least, don’t forget to show Richmond Zine Fest some love and Shop for a Cause at Rumors tomorrow between 4 p.m. and 7 p.m. :)

Mark Your Calendars: Richmond Zine Fest Fundraiser, June 22nd @ Rumors

Come One, Come All… to Shop for a Cause!

Rumors1editThe Cause: Richmond Zine Fest

The Place: Rumors @ 404 North Harrison Street

The Time: June 22nd, 4pm-7pm

Need a reason shop? Planning to treat yourself regardless? Reduce your shopping guilt by helping Richmond Zine Fest raise funds as you purchase items at Rumors. From 4pm until 7pm on June 22nd, we will receive a percentage of the cost of items sold.  Richmond Zine Fest will also have items available for purchase, such as zines and patches and more! We hope to see you there!

Full disclosure: All proceeds for Richmond Zine Fest go toward the cost of renting the space for the annual event held on October 8th at the GCCR as well as publicity costs and other fees (printing posters, copying flyers, etc.).  Any and all remaining funds go toward the planning of the next Richmond Zine Fest and other Zine Fest related events. None of the funds line the pockets of the organizers.  We plan this event because we love zines and the people who make them and read them. <3
