Paper Tail Zinester Camp Session Three (Students May Enroll at Any Time)
Charis Books and More, Tuesday, April 28 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. Fanzines with Brooke Hatfield. Tuesday, April 28th. 5 - 6:30 PM Must be enrolled (can enroll at any time, max 12). At this point, we have covered zine pagination and binding, narratives, and design. This session will cover a popular aspect of zine culture: fanzines. Facilitator Brooke Hatfield is an illustrator and writer. She has served on the board for Living Walls and is active in the Atlanta literary scene. Her fanzine on Flannery O’Connor was featured in Creative Loafing for its design, collaborative content, and humor. She is currently working on a Eudora Welty fanzine. Brooke will talk about her zine-making process, including how she uses art and illustration to convey fandom. We will then look at examples of fanzines from the Atlanta Zine Library. When commercial press isn’t covering a certain cultural phenomena, fanzines can be used to spread information. Attendees are encouraged to share things that stand out to them from the example zines. Using a prompt, everyone--including facilitators--will have time for a free-write. We will talk about what it means to create a safe space for sharing. Attendees will then share their work for feedback and encouragement. The general facilitator, Amanda, will discuss the expectation that each attendee brings their zine drafts from home to share. Towards the end of camp, attendees will select a zine to be featured in an upcoming zine exhibit. Each draft zine will, ideally, reflect the previous weeks’ session. Everyone, including the general facilitator (Amanda), will share their drafts. This format will model the importance of dialogue and community in zine-making.

Kidliterate Book Club- One for the Murphys
Charis Books and More, Tuesday, April 28 at 7pm
Join us for a wide-ranging conversation in a new kind of book club. We'll be reading one book a month (children's or young adult fiction). Titles will be very carefully selected. We'll seek out books that push the boundaries of what kidlit is "supposed to do."

Preference will be give to stories that some might call "edgy" or "controversial." Books that offer exposure to the world our kids are growing up in, as well as imaginary landscapes.

These will be books that might scare other parents. Books with "language" and "mature content." They may be "upsetting" books. The kind of books that "give kids ideas."

We like ideas.

We believe that books are the very best place for kids to encounter scary things and foreign concepts. We believe that books can help prepare kids to engage with the world around them. We believe kids are smart and resilient, great at asking tough questions. We believe they should.

But we also just like reading kids' books.

So come if you like amazingly good books! Come if you'd like to be introduced to titles you might not otherwise read! Come if you think books should stir the pot. Come for a new an way to screen your child's summer reading! Come if you want to argue with us!

April's Book Pick is One for the Murpheys.

This is a Charis Circle Whole Children, Strong Families Program. The suggested donation is $5.

Save the Date: Independent Bookstore Day is Saturday, May 2, 2015! Celebrate with Charis and Shop for One Day Only items!
Charis Books and More, Saturday, May 2 at 11am
Independent bookstores are not just stores, they're community centers and local anchors run by passionate readers. They are entire universes of ideas that contain the possibility of real serendipity. They are lively performance spaces and quiet places where aimless perusal is a day well spent. Indie bookstores, whether dusty and labyrinthine or clean and well-lighted, are not just stores, they are solutions. They hold the key to your love life, your career, and your passions. Walking the aisles of a good bookstore means stumbling upon a novel from India that expands your heart. It's encountering an art book that changes the direction of your life. It's the joy of having a perfect stranger steer you toward the perfect book. In a world of tweets and algorithms and pageless digital downloads, bookstores are not a dying anachronism. They are living, breathing organisms that continue to grow and expand. In fact, there are more of them this year than there were last year. And they are at your service. At Charis for Independent Bookstore Day we'll be selling a limited edition book by Roxanne Gay and an anthology featuring Anne Lamott, a print by Margaret Atwood, a Literary Map of the United States and a "Guess How Much I Love to Read" onesie for the tiniest bibliophiles in your life, plus a few more surprises; all for sale first come, first serve. In addition to special Independent Bookstore Day items, all our used books will be 50% off from 11am-7pm. More about Independent Bookstore Day on Facebook.

Charis Books and More, Tuesday, May 12 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. Grrrl zines with Judith Jones. Tuesday, May 12th. 5 - 6:30 PM Must be enrolled (can enroll at any time, max 12). Judith Jones is an emergent writer, zinester, blogger and intersectional feminist from the South. She curates and compiles a riot grrl inspired feminist zine, Tom Girl. In the academic work Girl Zines, Allison Piepmeier wrote, "Zines are sites where girls and women construct identities, communities, and explanatory narratives from the materials that comprise their cultural moment: discourses, media representations,ideologies, stereotypes and even physical detritus.” Within grrrl zines, many zinesters challenge sexism, racism, homophobia, and heteronormativity. These zines are not limited to female-identifying people. Through such avenues as riot grrrl, zines have been major players in feminist movements. Judith Jones is a contemporary grrrl zinester, showcasing grrrl zines’ scope and relevance. She will share her work, inspiration, and zine-making practice. Attendees will then look at examples of grrrl zines from the Atlanta Zine Library, including zines from the ‘90s (grrrl zines’ heydey). We will talk about the usefulness of zines as mediums to express difficult or paradigm-shifting topics. Attendees are encouraged to share things that stand out to them from the example zines. Using a prompt, everyone--including facilitators--will have time for a feminist-centered free-write. We will talk about what it means to create a safe space for sharing. Attendees will then share their work for feedback and encouragement. Additionally, we will talk about the upcoming Atlanta Zine Fest. In 2015, AZF is highlighting girls as the programming theme. Camp attendees are invited to form a panel and speak about their experiences as a group of novice zinesters. We will discuss what that panel could look like. Lastly, we will share our draft comic zines.
