We had an amazing time at Zine Fest on Saturday and gave away a whole bunch of resource zines and sold a whole bunch of Chicago Crypto Society publications (our little HOAX week spin-off project.)  Keep an eye out in the Library's Zine Exchange for our extras & unsold materials, as well as some new crpto zines due out this summer...it's also not to late to pickup a free copy of Breton's Birthday, or purchase a copy of DARK FOREST at the circulation desk (our Grimm projects) the proceeds of which go toward future AofR programming!

This Friday




Remember all those rules about surviving a horror movie? Well, we’re about to put them to a test!  CCC Library Gaming Society is hosting a murder mystery inspired by all things 90’s horror movies, culture, and fashion.  So get out your chunky shoes and fishnets and join us for plenty  of 90’s music, culture, and angsty teenage fun.  Will you be cast as the creepy principle? The troubled football star? The cheerleader gone bad?  The suspicious loner?  Come play to find out…
