On Saturday, May 14, we'll be celebrating the 100th anniversary of the Magonista anarchist invasion and commune in Tijuana (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/First_Battle_of_Tijuana) with a book release event for Flash by Jim Miller and an acoustic show. All proceeds raised will go to the Seccion 22 teachers' union in Oaxaca.

Here's what the celebration'll look like:

5 pm - Vegan Indian food will be available for purchase for $5. There will also be home-brewed wheat beer.

6 pm - Jim Miller will be doing a reading and taking questions about his new novel, Flash, that deals with the radical history of SD and contemporary struggles (http://www.jimmillerauthor.com/_i_flash__i__88050.htm)
