Providence Public Library is proud to sponsor and host the Rhode Island Independent Publishing Expo (RIPExpo)... a weekend devoted to small-press and self-published comics, zines and books.

Special Guests


The only event of its kind in Rhode Island, RIPExpo celebrates a diverse community of underground and small press artists on both a local and international scale. Writers and artists from all over North America will join local creators to share their work and ideas in a vibrant live forum. Vendors will have a variety of books, comics, prints and affordable artwork for sale to the public.

Artists’ talks and panel discussions featuring special guests and artists from across the country will take place onsite all weekend.  A full programming schedule, including film screenings, exhibitions and social events, will be announced on the website as the festival approaches.

Special guests include celebrated Providence-based artists . Out-of town featured guests include Caroline Paquita, a visual artist and musician based out of NYC, Ginette Lapalme a Toronto-based illustrator and artist, from Vermont, Jo Dery -- an artist who experiments with visual storytelling, and more.

RIPExpo is free and open to the public.
