Kids, don’t miss our creative writing and zine-making event at 112th Street on Saturday, June 21st at 1pm

Book Culture and harlequin creature invite you to spend a bit of your summer in a creative writing and ‘zine making workshop with Meghan Forbes, editor. With a fleet of typewriters to transport us back in time, you’ll write stories of what life might have felt and looked like well before the Digital Age.

After a short snack break, we’ll turn all those stories into a ‘zine to take home, as you’ll learn how to hand bind each page into a book you can keep!

All participants must RSVP to Michael at by Thursday, June 19th. Space is limited to 10 children, ages 8-12. This is a drop off event, and is expected to go until 4pm.

harlequin creature is a not-for-profit 501(c)3 arts and literary journal, published twice a year. Each copy of every issue is typed on an old typewriter by friends in Ann Arbor, New York, and Los Angeles; covers are letter-pressed and then hand bound. We are thrilled to bring the typewriters used in producing harlequin creature to Book Culture!

Meghan Forbes, creator, editor, translator, contributor;

Meghan has been writing all her live long days and wrote herself right into grad school. She is a karel teige enthusiast, and it is his work in photomontage, typography, and book art that has inspired the unique aesthetic of this project. She grew up in los angeles, likes to think she’s a new yorker, lives in ann arbor, and is a prague native.
