The Howard Zinn Book Fair, now in its second year will welcome over 140 authors and 50 publishers to a day celebrating the work of legendary historian Howard Zinn, author of The People’s History of the United States. Last year more than 1500 attended this free public event and we expect an even bigger crowd this year.

Our keynote address will be delivered by two giants in the fight for civil rights: Award-winning historian Dr. Clayborne Carson and Black Lives Matter co-founder Alicia Garza. They will be introduced by Dr. Nicholas Baham III, author of The Coltrane Church: Apostles of Sound, Agents of Social Justice.

This year’s tributes to the author of A People’s History of the United States include sessions led by David Barsamian of Alternative Radio and Voices of a People’s History co-author Anthony Arnove, as well as a special participatory reading of Marx in Soho by our very own local activists the Renounce War Project.

Keeping with the precedent we set last year, the Book Fair includes local, national and international authors and activists, such as Rebecca Solnit, David Talbot, Rachel Cassandra, Lauren Gucik, David Zirin, the Revolutionary Poets Brigade, and a special reading of Terry Bisson’s screen play Kansas Brown, featuring Peter Coyote.

Our complete program is available at:
and our growing list of sponsors includes: University of California Press, Seven Stories Press, AK Press, City Light Publishers, Haymarket Books, Heyday Books, Eastwind Books, PM Press, Verso Books, Ithuriel’s Spear, Reading Partners, and the SEIU 1021 Peace & Justice Committee.

Admission is free.

And to top it all off, we are presenting a Firebrand Records Showcase at Oakland’s Omni Commons the night before the fair, featuring The Last Internationale, Son of Nun, Built For the Sea and Ryan Harvey. These dynamic acts will be joined by the Bay Area’s premier political Hip-Hop band, Mass Bass and MC’d by poet Ananda Esteva. Expect performances by surprise guests. Tickets available in advance at:
