Attention Big Apple lovers and bookworms alike: the Zinester’s Guide to NYC official release party and reading is this Thursday, November 11th, at the Housing Works Bookstore Cafe in New York City! There will be plenty to enjoy, such as the Bushwick Book Club performing original songs inspired by the ZG2NYC, a zine fair for contributors’ zines and self-published comics, a recitation of favorite listings, and a competition for fabulous low budget prizes in ZG2NYC’s live $2 Pyramid Game Show.
The coolest, hippest holiday gift of the season is “an opinionated, anecdotal, low budget, highly participatory exploration of the greatest city on earth. From Japanese breakfasts, art supplies, used books, and wisteria (free for the eating in Central Park) to punk rope, volunteer opportunities, storefront museums and subway musicians, the Zinester’s Guide to NYC has it all.”
Author Ayun Halliday is the Chief Primatologist of the East Village Inky zine and author of No Touch Monkey! And Other Travel Lessons Learned Too Late. Her recommendations were supplemented by over fifty NY- based contributors, among them BUST’s very own Emily Rems and Kelly McClure!
According to Matt Gross, New York Times Frugal Traveler, “If you do everything in this book, you will be more of a New Yorker than even the New Yorkiest New Yorker in New York.”
Come check out the party and secure your own copy of the Zinester’s Guide to NYC (Microcosm Publishing, $9.00)!
Details: November 11th, Housing Works Bookstore Cafe, 126 Crosby St., NY. 7:00pm- 8:30pm.
