There’s a lot more to the Brooklyn Zine Fest this year, and kicking off four days of self-publishing events is a free panel talk on mixed-heritage zines on Thursday, April 24th at 7pm. Titled “Zines from the Borderlands: Storytelling about Mixed-Heritage” and programmed by Nayantara Sen of Brooklyn Historical Society’s “Crossing Borders, Bridging Generations” project, this panel features four BZF 2014 exhibitors:

Nia King (editor, MXD: True Stories by Mixed Race Writers)
Daniela Capistrano (founder, POC Zine Project)
Jenna Freedman (Barnard Zine Librarian)
Moderator Anne Hays (founder, Brooklyn-based zine distro Sleeping Creatures)

Among other topics, the panelists will discuss questions like, How can zines create new narratives and representations for mixed-heritage people, LGBTQ communities, and people of color who are stereotyped or ignored in mainstream media? and, What is the role of zines, DIY and self-publishing within marginalized communities?  Join us for this important and enlightening discussion.
