For our February Zine spotlight we are highlighting To Kevin, In Hopes of Losing Interest by local writer/filmmaker Whitney Borup. It being nearly V-day and all this zine is an apt study on relationships, good and bad. Borup pulls us along with a veracity that belies her repeated claims that the stories within are fiction. Her romanticism is honest and hopeful while avoiding cliches.
This zine can be found in the Zine Collection at the Salt Lake City Main Library.
