Accordions and Student Section on Sunday, April 26th
Sunday, April 26th (Day 2) will feature some special additions at the Brooklyn Zine Fest 2015. First, early arrivers will be treated to walk-in music by the Brooklyn Accordion Club, who will be debuting their publication Squeezine! at the fest. (It’s a natural pairing — a compressed accordion looks kind of like a stack of zines, after all.) To celebrate, an accordionist from the club will be playing at Brooklyn Historical Society’s entrance to kick things off and welcome attendees to the event.
Also on Sunday, you’ll browse zines by the many college, high school, and vocational students and teachers exhibiting in the Student Section. We started this special feature last year, and are excited to see what’s in store from this year’s students, who hail from SVA, Parsons, Barnard, The Center for Cartoon Studies, local high schools, and elsewhere.
Student Section exhibitors: Aimee Bee Brooks / Stephanie Zuppo / Barnard Zine Club / Weakly Boys / CJ’s Zines / Laura Lannes / Allyson Sheehan / Parsons Illustration / Parsons Alumni / Raw Fiction / Mady G. / Annie & Anna / J.R. Zuckerberg
On top of all that, the main exhibition spaces will feature a completely different lineup of 75 writers, artists, and publishers (see full Exhibitor List here) from what you’ll find on Saturday. We’ll see you all weekend!
