********** Online fundraiser was a HUGE success! **********

The Denver Zine Library had a 30-day online fundraiser and we’re proud to announce that we made $3,592 – over $1,000 more than our goal of $2,500. We have so much appreciation and gratitude for all of the love and support we received last month. There was a new video posted every day of the campaign and you can still watch them all at

***** Friday, April 13 – Seasonal Velocities: reading with Ryka Aoki *****

Friday, April 13, 2012


At the Denver Zine Library, 2727 W 27th Ave (entrance around right side of building, through alley)

You won’t want to miss this incredible reading by the amazing Ryka Aoki!

“In the hands of Ryka Aoki, words can be everything – a tool, a fire, a gift, a weapon, a meal, a barricade, a refuge. I was tempted to ration this book, so I’d have some when I needed it, but found myself gulping it down and was so nourished by it the whole way along.”

–S. Bear Bergman, The Nearest Exit May be Behind You, and Gender Outlaws: The Next Generation.

Seasonal Velocities invites the reader on a fragile and furious journey along the highways and skyways of discovery, retribution, and resolve. Through her poetry, essays, stories, and performances, award-winning writer Ryka Aoki has consistently challenged, informed, and enthralled queer audiences across the United States.
