Love Your Rebellion celebrates the grand opening of the Zine Library at Neenie’s House on Saturday, Oct. 19.
The Love Your Rebellion Zine Library will feature DIY artist and writing books from all over the country that will be kept in a permanent collection at Neenie’s House.
Neenie’s House owner Janeen Vanko and Love Your Rebellion founder Angela Page teamed up to create more access to art and writing in the East Palm neighborhood. The Zine Library will provide the East Palm community a public library of small press art and writing books. Guests to the library can browse the catalog free of charge and even purchase certain titles. The zines will be purchased by Neenie’s House from small press distributors and directly from zine makers. The LYR Zine Library is the first of its kind in Southwest Florida.
Zines are a do-it-yourself magazines or books that showcase art and/or writing. They range in size, content, and subject matter, but they all have one thing in common: they’re a method of self-publication. Zines have been around since the 1960s, but were popularized in the 1990s. Today, zines are seeing a resurgence among artists and writers who are tired of mass market publishing.
Celebrate the grand opening of the LYR Zine Library at Neenie’s House on Oct. 19 from noon to 5 p.m. LYR and Neenie’s House will host the Fort Myers Zine Fest featuring zine vendors from all over the state selling their original art and writing books, plus original artists and food and beverage vendors. Also enjoy DJs spinning all day long, readings from zine makers, and the unveiling of the LYR Zine Library murals.
