A talk with guest speaker
Siue Moffat
Hosted by the Toronto Zine Library Collective

Sunday, February 3rd, 2008. 1:30pm
Toronto Zine Library at the TRANZAC, second floor
292 Brunswick Avenue. Toronto


Siue Moffat began making zines in 1988. The subjects have ranged from gross food; yummy food; amusement parks in the Portland, Oregon; her involvement in the punk zine; and even, oddly enough, a zine that mixed Monty Python and punk. In 2003 Siue self published Lickin' the Beaters: Low Fat Vegan Desserts Illustrated by 8 Fantastic Artists. Basically a zine in book form, she did nearly everything herself including the photos and index. Siue busies herself between vegan food, punk rock and film archiving. Her second book of vegan chocolate and candy recipes will be published in the spring, while the first is scheduled for reprinting in March. Both books are being published by PM Press, the new imprint of AK Press. Siue is very proud of her large collection of veg cookzines.

The Toronto Zine Library is run by a collective of zine readers, zine makers and librarians who are looking to make zines more accessible in Toronto. We believe that zines are still an important medium of communication, and that they should be cherished, protected, and promoted. Our aim to do this through our public collection of zines, conducting related workshops at our physical library and abroad, and by holding events that promote zines as a method of open communication and free expression.
