V. Vale with Wm. S. Burroughs
We are super excited to announce our latest Special Guest, the San Francisco legend V. Vale! Publisher of RE/Search and the creator of the ne plus ultra of punk zines, Search & Destroy, Vale has served as a connection between the Beat Generation (Lawrence Ferlinghetti and Allen Ginsberg donated the initial funding for Search & Destroy!), punk rock, Burning Man, body art, and many other facets of alternative culture for the past 30 years. A familiar presence at every Zine Fest, this year Vale will be participating in some panels that will explore his own contributions to small-press culture as well as looking at zine culture of the past. We're very excited to be hosting Vale this year!
