Zine Tour Hits Town

Four notable zine-makers visit The Big Idea Cooperative Bookstore & Café on Wednesday night.

The Thank You For Being A Friend Zine Tour includes Taryn Hipp, JC, Kerri Radley and Sarah Rose.

Hipp, of New Jersey, calls herself “an old tattooed college lady who has been making zines for more than half her life.” Her current project is Sub Rosa, a collection of personal stories.

JC, who lives in Maryland, writes Tributaries, a perzine about growing up with rheumatoid arthritis.

Radley, of Philadelphia, writes the perzine Deafula, about her life as a deaf person.

And Rose, also of Philadelphia, puts out Tazewell’s Favorite Eccentric, about everything from surviving sexual abuse to making balloon animals for a living. Rose is also an organizer for Philly Zine Fest.

The tour (yes, the name’s a Golden Girls reference) hits Big Idea from 7-9 p.m. on Wednesday. The joint’s at 4812 Liberty Ave., in Bloomfield.
