Free from the traditional regulations of the published media, zines are becoming increasingly popular with writers. Cockeysville Library hosts Baltimore authors Dan Taylor, Nadja Martens, David Cookson and Anna Whitehead, who will read from their works at the program "Zine Authors Read" on Tuesday. Learn about this modern form of expression and see the experts at work. Visitors will have the chance to browse more than 200 of the library's zines for check-out. Refreshments will be served.
