Have you ever been curious about what it would be like to have Bigfoot as a Pen Pal? Interested in knowing what T.V. shows are taking over 2060? Our Tuesday and Thursday Night Tutoring Students in Echo Park have those answers and more in our newest, experimental publication, If Life Gives You Lemons, Give Them Back. Throughout the Spring, our students learned about Zines including their multifaceted histories, functions, and aesthetics. In the spirit of Doing it Yourself and Doing it Together, our students researched, brainstormed, and assembled their Zines with the support of their peers and tutors. In this Zine collection, you will find a wide spectrum of topics including critical reflections on pressing socio-political issues, heartfelt insights into our students daily lives, and imaginative fictional stories. We hope our young Zinesters inspire you to engage in the art of cut and paste.
