Join the Somerville Public Library and local artist and creator Dave Ortega for a FREE Zine Making workshop.

Do you have a story that you just can’t wait to share? A zine is a small-circulation, self-published work about anything! 

Learn how to structure your zine, learn some brief zine history, and make your zine! Attendees will leave with copies of each other’s work.

About the Presenter:

Dave Ortega's self-published comic book series Días de Consuelo is about the early life of his grandmother, who was born during the Mexican Revolution. Those issues were collected, edited and published as a graphic novel by Radiator Comics in March 2022. Días de Consuelo was selected by the Society of Illustrators for their Illustration 65 annual. Dave is a grantee of the Collective Futures Fund, a program of The Andy Warhol Foundation for the Visual Arts. He is also a recipient of multiple artist grants from the Massachusetts Cultural Council. An excerpt of Días de Consuelo appeared in the Illustrated PEN section of the PEN America site.
