The Read/Write Library is a new model for open, location-specific archiving of independent and small press media. We are always seeking books, magazines, zines, journals, broadsides, newspapers, and art books of all types, genres, and print runs from the Chicago area.

COME JOIN US! This Sunday!Read/Write Library and Big Draw Chicago are partnering for a one day program on October 6, 2013 in celebration of community, drawing, and self-expression. Local youth are cordially invited to participate in a discussion featuring three Chicago comic and illustration artists with works in the Read/Write Library collection. Artists Sarah Drake, Brooks Golden, and Caroline Picard will break down their process and talk about how they found their own personal style and share ideas. Following the short discussion, each artist will give a “mini lesson” on one element of their illustrative style. Youth and artists will have the opportunity to draw together and create a short comic of their own to add to a compilation zine and become a part of the Read/Write Library collection.
The event will run from 2pm-5pm and will begin with a pancake brunch and social! Here is a link to our event on the Big Draw’s official calendar! And here is where you can reserve tickets and read more about the event!
