Ice Cream Social and Zine Launch with Maranda Elizabeth, Roberts Street zinemaker-in-residence!

by nicolem ()

Friday July 16, 5pm. Roberts Street Social Centre, 5684 Roberts Street.

Come by for some ice cream and a zine reading in the backyard at Roberts Street. Bring a zine of your own to share, or just come by and listen. Maranda has completed a new issue of her personal zine, Telegram Ma'am, revolving around disability & writing. The zine discusses her own perspective of taking care of one’s mental health via traditional medical routes as well as exploring DIY options; she also wrote about the books that inspired her to write when she was growing up and how those books still play a role in her life today. 
Maranda is a zinemaker who lives in Lindsay, Ontario, and is fond of reading, knitting, riding her bike, and learning new recipes. The Roberts Street Residency program features artists, writers and zinemakers all summer long. Check out our residency page for a list of upcoming residents!
