I made it to New York! Tonight is the very last show of the Zines One Toast tour! The reading is at Blue Stockings books at 7 PM. Be there!
Then, let’s go have a beer to celebrate the awesome month of touring with my UK friends and see them off back to their tiny island next to Europe!
This month has been amazing. We have read zines to people in 19 cities and have visited 22 states! We have been awed by The Olympic National Park, The Redwoods, The Grand Canyon, Zion’s National Park, The Rocky Mountains, The Black Hills, The Crazy Horse Monument, The Badlands, the Blue Ridge Parkway, and even Las Vegas! We have had readings at zine libraries, infoshops, houses, zine fests, record stores, craft shops, books stores, art schools, universities, and even an outdoor monument! We have seen lots of animals: Deer, bear, mountain goat, squirrels, antelope, prairie dogs, and countless dogs and cats at the houses of our fine hosts!
I’m sure this tour will spark many zines but until then you can check out my photos here.
I’ll write some more about the trip later. Until then, I’m hanging out in Brooklyn and headed home to Portland on the 1st. Apparently Paul has attempted to grow something resembling a beard. We’ll see if it is still on his face when he greets me at the airport….
