Come see us this Saturday!! SLPL is proud to partner with St. Louis’s large small press community to present the 2nd Annual Small Press Expo at Central Library on September 26 from 11 a.m. – 5 p.m. !! New for this year, SPEx will host panel discussions and hands-on workshops. All events are FREE and open to the public. So, how cool is that–all this going on, and totally free!!
The library’s Training Room will feature half-hour, hands-on workshops (collage, bookbinding, pressure prints, and more) as well as a screening of Root Hot or Die, a film about King Cat Comics creator John Porcellino. In the Auditorium, Sibling Rivalry Press (Little Rock, AR) will be part of a discussion of book design; Tenth Zine will discuss their new issue, black gay culture, and their St. Louis-based contributors; and Tim Lane and John Porcellino will discuss making comic art.
