Did anyone else notice that three of the top ten libraries in the 500,000+ population category and one in the 100,000 in Hennen's American Public Library Ratings 2008 rankings have something in common? That something is zines!
I thought it might be time to lay out a policy about comments, regarding spammers and trolls.
More policies to come, as needed.
This started as a Facebook update, but I thought it would be worth exploring at greater length here, especially as I hope to have a nice bibliography of queer women's fiction by the time I'm through.
Sessions I went to:
- Negotiating Authority and Voice in a Feminist Girls' School
- Zines and Magazines: Girls Resisting and Mainstreaming
- Dinner performances: including Flamenco documentary about three young women, two of whom were Barnard students
- For Colored Girls, Track 1: "The ABC's of Colored Girls"
- Lunch performances: including SOLHOT
- Grrrls in the Library: Documenting Third Wave Feminist Activism through Zines
Plus I had some random thoughts.
