Zinesters aren't supposed to talk! They're supposed to write quirky stories and draw awkward images, then print them in black and white and sell them for $3 to people who then feel ultra-indie because they own a zine. But at the Zinesters Talking
series, local zinesters will break code and get vocal.
The series will be held every Tuesday evening through September at one of the four Multnomah County libraries (Central, North Portland, Hollywood and Belmont) sponsoring the series. The first talk is next Tuesday, Aug. 26, in the Central Library's US Bank Room. The kickoff reading will feature Shawn Granton, editor of Zinester's Guide to Portland
(a handy pocket-sized reference book to Portland eateries, drinking holes and other attractions.) Granton will be joined by Erica Schreiner, author of the zines The Way Things Used to Be,
