Richmond author Dale Brumfield will give a presentation on his new book, "Richmond Independent Press: A History of the Underground Zine Scene" (The History Press, 2013),in which he uncovers the nearly forgotten story of Richmond’s glory days of counterculture publishing. Brumfield, who makes use of many materials found in Special Collections and Archives in James Branch Cabell Library, traces the development of this publishing scene and its important magazines and newspapers, including the VCU-based Commonwealth Times, and considers the impact that these made on the city. The presentation will be followed by a book sale, signing, and reception.
