This year more than 50 zine creators and artists will be staffing the exhibitor tables. They’re ready to network or answer your questions about all things creative — but watch out. You may come across a wily chicken manning a booth — it’s happened before — and while we’re sure chickens are cute and all that, fans reported chickens from previous years weren’t very chatty. Artists participating in one of the panel discussions, lectures or zine workshops for kids and teens are likely to be more conversational. It’s tween-book-nerd heaven at this fest; kids can take part in a bookbinding and letterpress demos by Lee Steiner and Travis Smith. Festivities continue after dark with a prom-themed after-party, “Under the Zine,” where revelers should strap on their prom best and shake their alternative moneymakers to the sounds of The Wiggins and a set by DJ Knife Emoji, among others.
2 to 8 p.m. 1324 West Clay. For information, call 713‐522‐4652 or visit zinefesthouston.org. Free.
