Abstract: 
This zine spans two years of the author's life, age 21 to 23, and she explains it as follows: "This zine is a disorganized hodge-podge of my last years in college, and my first months of post-grad. Like my last issue, there are tons of references to coffee, Harry Potter, and not showering. But I bookended this round with two comics about my mom."

Volume: 
Issue: 
Abstract: 
From introduction: "...60 writers take on the on-again, off-again affair between mind and body. They take inventory part by part, feeling by feeling, urge by irresistible urge. They address birth and death and everything in between. The struggle to resist the status quo and take ownership of how we see and think about ourselves is fought in many ways on these pages. Not unexpectedly, the writers prove once again, hilariously, mournfully, tenderly, that the personal is political." Writers for this issue come from St. Leonard's House and from the following Chicago Public Library branches: Bezazian, Budlong Woods, Richard M. Daley, Hall, King, Mabel Manning.

Alternatives: Roads Less Traveled

Catalog Number: 
b.37
Date: 
1997
Volume: 
1st ed
Abstract: 
<p>&quot;Sometimes a disquieting idea, for at its core, an alternative signals difference: a state some may dustrust, others tolerate, still others, embrace. Fortunately, divergent views remain energetically alive, experience brings hope, exhilerating no matter what the outcome. In this anthology on less traditional and predictable lifepaths, the intensity, humor and spirit of these writing actually transcends differences, evidence of the strength found in exploring less travelled roads.&quot;</p><p>Contributors, cont'd: Mary Damon Peltier, Shirley Powers, Rita Reinert, Ellen Rosen, P.

Abstract: 
<p>HFI would like to promote individual achievement &amp; social cooperation in accord with nature. To do this, we will use clear intentions, a calm attitude, focus, and harmony.

To fulfill our obligation to society, we wish to work toward defending the weak, protecting the environment, useful education, eliminating poverty, and implementing universal healthcare as a means to peace. PRINCIPLES: 1) We want to govern ourselves, not others. 2) We want to work for unity instead of competition. 3) We want to be open and promote general participation and reject secrecy, racism, sexism, homophobia, and other discriminatory practices. 4) We strive for simplicity and moderation.</p><p>In this issue: The author discusses his grandfather's death and the memories it brings; moustache rituals in Muskegon, Michigan; moving to Chicago and looking for work; thoughts on the Iraq War and democracy; and renting a Batman-themed room at a hotel in Gurnee.
