The Mutation: hormones, literacy, and the adolescent publishing scene

A Lecture by William Pym Thursday, September 17, 6 PM

Temple Gallery ‐and‐ Megawords Storefront Corner of 11th and Cherry Streets, Philadelphia

Writer, curator and artist William Pym will talk about the zine as a special form of publication, illustrating his lecture with examples and looking at specific case studies. Pym is interested in the ways in which zines are assembled and digested and he will present his own work, The Mutation, an examination of the force of male adolescent hormonal needs and the young zine writer. The event will continue at Megawords Storefront, where other zine authors will speak and other zines will be distributed.
