Small science fiction booklets created by amateurs in the 1930s gave birth to the independent publication known as zines or fanzines. The University of Iowa special collections department is storing thousands of rare zines, which are now are in the process of being digitized for the first time.  They are stored in a secure area of the University of Iowa libraries where the ceiling lights have special filters to prevent damage to priceless documents.

When you see a crumpled up piece of paper on the ground, pick it up and read it because you may just find something wonderful. Davy Rothbart first became well known for sharing notes he discovered in Found Magazine,  and now he’s sharing his romantic misadventures.  Charity Nebbe talks with him about his new book, My Heart is an Idiot.
