This December 13th, Humboldt Grass Roots is inviting everyone including the usual suspects, anarchists, artists, and activists to Humboldt’s first anarchist book fair- taking place at the Community Center in scenic Manila, California for a celebration of community in resistance, Humboldt County. Located on the physical and psychic edge of the disintegrating American Empire, Humboldt has a reputation as a zone of resistance, where free people have fought bitterly against encroachments of federal and local authorities in their autonomy. We present: a literary celebration of this spirit of freedom, which has magnetically attracted rebels, eccentrics and misfits of all types to mountainous Northern California for generations.
The bookfair will bring radical speakers, publishers and artists from across the West Coast and America to mingle behind the "Redwood Curtain" and cross-pollinate with local groups and organizations. Hard-to-find, limited-run books, zines and literature from West Coast authors and distributors focusing on anarchist and anti-authoritarian approaches to vital struggles regarding ecology, labor, racism, patriarchy, prisons and the fight for freedom in an increasingly repressive society, will be made available to the public. Local vendors, authors, publications and community organizations have been invited to add to the dialogue. Workshops and discussions, free food and giveaways, skillshares and face painting for the kids round out the festivities.
