Bowties, babydoll dresses, dancin’ shoes and pigtails. Don your most adorable attire for the Summer Bummer Twee Picnic & Reading. Shed a few tears in yr waterproof mascara, because we’ll be reading about summer bummers: grief, loss, guilty pleasures, misandry, catcallin’ and more. But don’t be afraid to tell us about your summertime adventures and sappy romances. It’s a twee picnic, after all! Featuring readings by:
Bri of Motor City Kitty (Cleveland, OH)
Amber Dearest of Culture Slut and Fight Boredom Distro (Montréal)
Claire Evans of Unicornzine (Montréal)
More TBA – Anyone is welcome to read at this event, be it from your own zine, your favourite zine, or your embarrassing journals.
Snacks and refreshments will be available, and if you’re lucky, we’ll bring temporary tattoos and the Fight Boredom Distro catalogue.
Why the dancing shoes? Because we’ll be heading over to the dance party at Squalor afterward!
*If it rains, you can find us havin’ an indoor picnic at the Ste-Émilie Skillshare (Located at 3942 rue Ste-Émilie, on the second floor).
