the sensitive poet

Gary Greaves, co-founder of ZAPP


I have some very sad news to share: One of the original co-founders of ZAPP (originally 'ZAP', Seattle's Zine Archive Project), Gary Greaves, has passed away.  I got a chance to meet and talk with him for a few minutes at ZAPP's open house last fall.  I found him encouraging and inspiring, and could see where ZAP got some of its powerful primordial spark.  There will be a memorial for Gary this morning:
 
Friday, February 20 at 10:00 a.m.
Central Lutheran Church, 1710 11th Avenue, on Seattle’s Capitol Hill
