Forget blogs: Get out from behind your computer screen and into the world of printed lit at LA Zine Fest. The all-day event showcases over 175 exhibitors of zines, small press publications and comics from across the country, bringing together the best of SoCal nerds for the exchange of art, ideas and more. Don't miss the fest's free readings and workshops on niche topics like "how to run your own DIY music venue." This year's fest takes place at Homenetmen (3347 N San Fernando Rd) in Glassell Park. The event caps off LA Zine Week, which features indie art and literary events throughout the city from February 7 to 14.
