Friday, March 15, 5:30 PM, University of Chicago Quadrangle Club

In anticipation of the April 6 symposium, come to a guided tour of the University of Chicago’s exhibit DIY Autobiography: My Life is an Open Book. The tour will be followed by dinner at the Quadrangle Club across the street from the Library. No charge for tour; dinner is approximately $38 before wine.

The tour will be given by the exhibition curator Sarah Wenzel, Bibliographer for Literature of Europe and the Americas at the University of Chicago Library.

Zines originated with inexpensively produced twentieth century science fiction publications known as fanzines. More recently, they have evolved into a vibrant and edgy form of self expression used primarily by young writers and readers who embraced the printed as oppose to the electronic word. This exhibition explores the work of women writing "perzines" or zines that are personal, and displays zines from or following the tradition of the feminist movements of the 70s and the punk movements of the 80s and 90s. TIme Out Chicago describes the exhibit as "excellent".

University of Chicago Library, 1100 East 57th Street, and the Quadrangle Club, 1155 East 57th St, Chicago. Program at 5:30, Dinner at 6:30.
