READ zine is created at the site-specific READ Zine Making Party. These events have occurred sporadically over the years since 2001.
The first READ Zine Making Party took place on September 21st, 2001, at the University of Iowa School of Art's "Checkered Space." Since then, there have been 6 events. The zine party is sometimes coupled with musical performances, video installations, slide shows, instructional lectures, and/or juggling bonanzas. The event is facilitated by Bradley Adita. Information and images can be accessed at the READ zine website.
