EVERYONE is invited to the Bay Area Anarchist Bookfair! This event is FREE.
The Anarchist Bookfair has been a San Francisco tradition for over a decade, and has become one of the largest annual gatherings of anarchists and radical books in the world. Last year, during the 11th Annual Anarchist Bookfair in March 2006, over four thousand people–from every walk of life, locals from San Francisco and visitors from around the world–enjoyed good conversation, speakers, art, and of course..books!
It was easy to spend the entire day between browsing the long tables of books, magazines, zines, artwork, videos and other wares, sitting in the sun eating sandwiches from the worker-owned café or listening to a wide variety of speakers who took on subjects from the need to abolish the institution of the state (Ward Churchill), to a young dyke’s adventures in San Francisco in the mid 90s (Michelle Tea).
With so much to do and see, the Bookfair has expanded into two days for 2007! Approximately 50 anarchist groups and alternative book, magazine, and publishing people will be represented at tables selling and distributing books and materials you won’t find anywhere else.
The plans for the event also include a cafe, spoken word presentations, kid & family space, free bike valet and an art gallery.
