I am Rosie Magaña, the founder and Director for Palabras Librería/Bookstore. Our Zine does not have a title yet, but I think it may be called, "Rebel Road: In the Grand Scheme of Things" and it will be based on Phoenix and Grand Avenue culture.
What would you like people to know about the zines you create and/or why you are looking forward to tabling at Phx Zine Fest 2016?
I'd like people to know that there is a nonprofit Bilingual Bookstore and Community library on Grand where they can distribute their zines and where people can buy zines. I also want people to know that the space is open to be used for local community events and if they are interested in hosting a zine or any other art/community based event or workshop they can contact us and we provide the space free of charge. I want people to know they have a place to be free to express themselves and share ideas and passions in an open and diverse environment (palabrasbookstore.com) . As for the Zine, we are working on the very first issue now and this zine will feature images and work that exemplifies Phoenix Culture and the identity of Grand avenue. They will serve as a way to inform the public of whats happening on Grand and be a medium for POC art. We will also be bringing some mugs with our logo to sell and some zines from local artists.
