Jenna Brager might just be a lady werewolf. She identifies as a junior hoarder and enjoys pie, Xena the Warrior Princess, and Jewish ghost stories. Jenna claims to never edit her zines. Check out her impressive CV.
Jenna is the creator of the mini-comic perzine hybrid Sassyfrass Circus. Jenna edits the collaborative zines Femme-A-Barb (about feminine identified people with body hair) and Dokeyit (a zine which seeks to speak to the cross-sections of Jewish and queer/feminist identification and how these might inform an anti-Zionist or Palestinian solidarity politic) Jenna is also a co-producer of Archiving the Underground about zines in archives, academia, and libraries.
Jenna will be reading at Chicago Zine Fest’s Exhibitor Reading at 826CHI on March 8.
