Zinester Profile: Stephanie Basile

Today’s profile is of zinester Stephanie Basile! This is very exciting to Kate, as the two of them initially became friends at Bluestockings years ago through Steph’s longtime zine, Suburban Blight!

In Steph’s own words:

Stephanie Basile is a union organizer who lives in NYC. She is interested in radical politics, particularly anarchism, syndicalism, and feminism. She started Suburban Blight in 2004, editing regular issues until 2007.  She is excited about releasing a new issue of her after her haitus.

Here’s the cover of the newest issue of Suburban Blight, published at the end of 2010 :

I'm a college reference librarian by day and a zine librarian by (Thursday) night. I created this blog mainly to share links that can possibly be useful to people interested in issues pertaining to librarianship, gender studies, New York City, zines, and a whole bunch of other topics! Also, in case you were curious, my blog's name was inspired by Gertrude Stein's book "Everybody's Autobiography."
