My name is Christopher Drew. This is my current cultural output. I'm interested in small press/printing, ephemera, and zines.

Watch my presentation (made for Mo. Folklore Society Conference 2020)

Reading the Rainbow: The Women's Movement in Print in Southwest Missouri

Read my articles

Banish the Stargazers? Joan Bodger, the Missouri State Library, and the Freedom to Read Foundation

Meaning in the Use of Freedom: The Free Press Underground, the University of Missouri, and Students for a Democratic Society

these are both behind paywalls, if you are a librarian you should support the Journal of Intellectual Freedom and Privacy, if you want a copy of either article email me at cad617@gmail.com
