If you haven’t caught wind, the Roach Motel Zinefest is destined to return August 20th. Artists from all over Iowa and beyond will be showcasing their independently published, handmade books at the Vaudeville Mews.  Sign up here for skill building sessions with the amazing Cat Rocketship and Ramona Muse. At the same time, reserve your table to sell and showcase your zines.
