Robb Roemershauser from New Orleans, LA. Aboveground Zine Library and Iron Rail Bookstore.
Robb will recount a griping story of almost losing everything he ever had from a natural disaster that happen in his backyard. The only thing he had from a Hurricane Katrina was a zine library he did. How a anarchist bookstore/ library became the first library to re-open two months to the day after the storm. Robb will talk about how putting together a anarchist bookfair the same weekend the info-shop
re-open and how keeping focus on working on bookfair kept him from not going insane. The bookfair was the first major event to take place in New Orleans besides a corporate rock concert. Robb will talk about some background information regarding the zine library and why
they are important to have in every major city. Robb has selected 20 zine covers and will discuss why he did and give some background information on the zines. http://video.yahoo.com/watch/33391/1291253
