Organizer Profile: Kate Angell

Kate Angell – along with fellow Pisces/fabulous cartoonist Elvis Bakaitis – is one of the organizers of the NYC Feminist Zinefest. She is an academic reference librarian and a former zine librarian at ABC No Rio. She would like to take this opportunity to thank pie, Diana Ross, Gertrude Stein, and knock knock jokes for their support during the Zinefest’s planning. Her criteria for buying clothes is often, “Would this  qualify me to dance in an ABBA music video?”

Kate is the creator of the zine “My Feminist Friends,” in which she interviews five of her friends on various aspects of feminism. She credits much of her motivation to working on events such as this zinefest to her grandmother, inspiration and close friend, Evelyn (Evie) Angell, who passed away last year.

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."
