APC Events & American Library Association Summer Conference

Quimby's and the Alternative Press Center Welcome Paul Buhle at the
Alternative Press Center Open House

Date: Sunday, July 12th
Time: 5:30 p.m. to 7:00 p.m.
Location: Alternative Press Center / 2040 N. Milwaukee, 2nd floor.
      (Take the Blue Line to O'Hare, exit at Western stop)
Note: the location is not handicap accessible

Paul Buhle will discuss the legacy of alternative media and underground press as well as his contemporary work in graphic adaptation of left history at the new location of the Alternative Press Center (APC). Buhle's most recent work, Studs Terkel's Working: A Graphic Adaptation, has been described as "a visual palette of influences from Mexican, African American, superhero, and feminist art, each piece an electric melding of artist and subject. This is a book that will both delight Terkel fans and introduce his work to a whole new audience—a fitting tribute to an American legend."

Buhle's books and other merchandise will be on hand courtesy of Quimby's and APC will celebrate the author's presence and its move with free wine, beer and snacks.
