At the Denver Zine Library
2727 W 27th Ave, Denver CO 80211 (entrance on right of building, through alley)The Denver Zine Library is thrilled to host a family friendly reading featuring Tomas Moniz, the founder, editor and writer for the incredible zine, Rad Dad! We’ll have some local readers as well. There will be crafts, kids’ books and zines, and the Nurturing Liberation playroom for kids too. Bring some money to buy your own copy of this awesome book. Donations to the Denver Zine Library are also gladly accepted.“Rad Dad: Dispatches from the Frontiers of Fatherhood” combines the best pieces from the award-winning zine Rad Dad and from the blog Daddy Dialectic, two kindred publications that have tried to explore parenting as political territory. Both of these projects have pushed the conversation around fathering beyond safe, apolitical focus most books and websites stick to; they have not been complacent but have worked hard to create a diverse, multi-faceted space in which to grapple with the complexity of fathering.Today more than ever, fatherhood demands constant improvisation, risk and struggle. With grace, honesty and strength, Rad Dad’s writers tackle all the issues that other parenting guides are afraid to touch: the brutalities, beauties, and politics of the birth experience, the challenges of parenting on an equal basis with mothers, the tests faced by transgender and gay fathers, the emotions of sperm donation, and parental confrontations with war, violence, racism, and incarceration. Rad Dad is for every father out in the real world trying to parent in ways that are loving, meaningful, authentic, and ultimately revolutionary.********** DZL Closed on 12/25 and 1/1 **********The DZL will be closed on 12/25 and 1/1, but will be open on 12/24 and 12/30 from 11am-3pm.********** Looking for volunteers **********Do you have a few hours to spare once a month?
