Paper Trail Zinester Camp Session Eight (Students May Enroll at Any Time)
Charis Books and More, Tuesday, June 2 at 5pm
This meeting and all subsequent meetings will be generally facilitated by Amanda Mills (Murmur). She will also assist in coordinating the zine exhibit and panel. Amanda Mills’ educational background is in English Rhetoric. She has been involved in zine-making since elementary school, including an internship with the Denver Zine Library, teaching a weekly class on zine-making at her high school, forming the Atlanta Zine Library in college, and organizing the Atlanta Zine Fest. Her current project, Murmur, is a community resource for DIY and ephemeral media. Distribution, exhibitions, and panels with Laura Relyea. Tuesday, June 2nd 5 - 7 PM Must be enrolled (can enroll at any time, max 12). Laura heads Vouched Books, a company that introduces readers to poetry and other literature published by small, independent presses that they might not find at mainstream bookstores. Her distribution method involves setting up “guerrilla bookstores,” or portable tables of books, at local literary events. She also organizes and hosts her own reading series, “Vouched Presents.” Her website features author interviews and book reviews. At last year’s AZF, Laura facilitated an independent literature panel, titled “Support, Community, and DIY Publishing.” She is knee deep in a grassroots method of distribution, promotion, and performance. As such, Laura will speak about the significance of networking, community building, and dialogue as post-production processes. Elizabeth Anderson, Executive Director of Charis, will offer actionable advice on how to approach local businesses about distributing independently-produced zines. She will talk about how this will manifest for the camp participants’ who wish to have their work for sale at Charis. Attendees are expected to bring the zines that they are working on for the zine exhibit. They are encouraged to share sections on which that they would like to receive feedback. We will finalize logistics of setting up the exhibit and organizing the panel.

In Real Life: Searching for Connection in High-Tech Times with Jon Mitchell
Charis Books and More, Thursday, June 11 at 7:30pm
Join Charis in welcoming Atlanta native, Jon Mitchell, as he returns home to discuss his provocative new book on the links between spirituality and technology, In Real Life: Searching for Connection in High-Tech Times. Technology helps us with our hardest work. It can also offer us endless distractions. Can technology enable us, as individuals and communities, to do our greatest possible work, the hard work of being a good person? Jon Mitchell sets out to identify and explore the ways in which we can develop a more thoughtful relationship with technology. Rather than using technology as a medium for connecting with the world, he recommends we rethink our relationship with technology, using it as a resource that allows us to have a more intimate and personal relationship with the world around us, nature, and our loved ones. Mitchell offers concrete practices for the way we use technology in our daily lives. Mitchell uses his years of experience as both a tech journalist and a mindfulness practitioner to propose a rethinking of both the design of technology and its use. This is a Charis Circle Urban Sustainability and Wellness Program and the suggested donation is $5.

The Best Kept Secret Book Signing with Wendi Nunnery
Charis Books and More, Saturday, June 20 at 1:30pm
Join Charis in welcoming Wendi Nunnery, who will sign her new young adult book, The Best Kept Secret.

In high school, everyone has their secrets. Even well-brought-up Emma Fraser.

Emma’s sophomore year started out all wrong. First, her best friend Andy confessed to losing his virginity in the back seat of a car, leaving Emma all alone in the V-Club. Then the rest of her friends got weird and, suddenly, Emma found herself feeling like a stranger. Now, struggling to find her new place, Emma wonders if things could get any worse. When Deegan Burke, a rich, gorgeous senior, asks Emma to be his date for the prom, Emma thinks her luck has begun to change. But rather than being able to celebrate, her whole world starts to unravel. And when secrets that once seemed so innocent start to take a very dangerous turn, Emma discovers that friends are friends no matter what…and some secrets aren’t worth keeping.
