Since November of 2017 my dad has been going through a very difficult illness. I couldn’t help but relate my experience in dealing with his illness to the very long winter we were having in Minneapolis. During a blizzard in mid-April I took photos of snow and wrote most of the text that became this zine. It was a way to help me process a very tough time.
I’ve never made a zine before and I’ve also never made anything this personal. But I felt compelled to share this experience and I hope that maybe it can help others going through a tough time.
The Longest Winter is 16 pages long and is bound by hand. It is available to purchase here. All profits will go towards plane tickets to visit my family. Thank you for your support, it means a lot!
