Ara Jo Zine Library Dedication and Memorial – Nov. 29 @ College Hour, Atrium

28 November 2017

Event: Ara Jo zine library dedication and memorial for those lost in the GhostShip fire

Time/Location: Wednesday, November 29th 12:15-1:30 pm, Atrium

Ara Jo, who passed in the GhostShip fire one year ago, was a driving force in the East Bay zine* scene and in bringing zines to Berkeley City College.  She not only helped to coordinate several years of the annual East Bay Alternative Book and Zine Fest, which was held at BCC from 2010-2015, but also acted as resident zinester on campus.  Ara Jo brought zines into classrooms and taught students skills related to self-publication.  

Berkeley City College library is dedicating the zine collection to Ara Jo to recognize her contributions to campus and community in a ceremony on Wednesday, November 29th in the atrium during college hour (12:15 – 1:30).

Please join librarians, zinesters who have collaborated with Ara, and Ara’s friends to celebrate her life and legacy.  If you like, you can bring supplies for an altar to all victims of the GhostShip fire.  Following the dedication, the altar will be placed in Berkeley City College library.  

Zine donations will also be accepted.

Learn more about Ara Jo’s life and influence.


*What is a zine?  It’s a self-published, small run publication that can cover basically any topic – from the deeply personally to the proselytizing political to DIY and more.  BCC’s zine collection is organized to fit with topics covered in BCC courses.
