Golden Gate Park at Ninth Street and Lincoln Way, San Francisco.

The 17th Annual Bay Area Anarchist Book Fair returns this year on Sunday, March 31st and Saturday, April 1st at the San Francisco County Fair Building in Golden Gate Park. A cross between a literary summit, theoretical conference and big radical family reunion, the Book Fair is free and you don't have to be an Anarchist to enjoy it, everyone is welcomed. The yearly event has inspired the creation of Anarchist Book Fairs across North America and draws visitors, vendors and authors from far and wide. The Book Fair features over forty-five radical book publishers, distributors, and sellers both large and small along with a lineup of world class authors and engaging panels.

Speakers this year include: community organizer and author Scott Crow discussing his latest work, Black Flags and Windmills: Hope, Anarchy and the Common Ground Collective, about his work in New Orleans; Dr. Richard Brettell, an authority on the Impressionist artist Camille Pissarro, and curator of the recent Legion of Honor exhibition, Pissarro’s People, discussing the artist’s anarchist philosophy and leading a panel on 19th Century Art and Anarchism; and investigative reporter and Counter Punch co-editor Jeffery St Clair. Other speakers include historian Peter Linebaugh, Pacifica Radio's Against the Grain host Sasha Lilley, activist Selma James, author George Katsiaficus, art specialist Alexander Akin, historian Ian Boal, artist Winston Smith, RE/Search publisher V. Vale, plus many more. The Book Fair provides bike valet parking and a Kid's Space.
