SO, you’re coming to Milwaukee for the ZL(u)C and are looking for places to stay. There are a couple of options:
1) Couchsurfing! If you’re just looking for a couch to surf on for a couple of days, please put your name under this line.
a. Honor Moody I’m flying into Milwaukee Thursday July 7, and out Sunday July 10. I also surf floors and back yards, but am doing three weeks with carry-on luggage only, so will have no bedding, tenting, etc.
b. Chelsea Kirkland- July 7 getting in in the afternoon, leaving July 9 after the conference. Approaching my work on zines/ libraries from a queer anarchist perspective. I am a really good houseguest!
2) Dorm Housing – This is pending approval from the Library to host the conference there. http://www4.uwm.edu/housing/reservations/conferences/
Are folks interested in group rate rooms? We’ve been discussing it a bit on the Zine Librarians email list–email Alycia (alyciasellie (at) gmail (dot) com) if you are interested, or add your name/a note here. I think we need more than 10 people for a “group.”

- John S.
