Some pictures...

I had a tremendously awesome 24 Hour Zine Thing & Reading at my library, and I took some pictures during the reading. I wish I had thought to take pictures during the zinemaking portion of the event, which had over 20 attendees including an 8 year old and a 78 year old.

Thanks for creating this!
