Boston Anarchist Bookfair, To Bring Together Activists, Organizers, Community Members, and Academics For a Weekend of Learning, Strategy, and More

Boston, MA—

Why anarchy?

With the ongoing economic war being waged on the poor and working people of the world, one has to wonder why we aren’t trying something different. Well in fact we are! The sudden attention towards anarchists in Boston and across the country comes at a convenient time: Over the weekend of November 9th-11th, Simmons College will host Boston’s second Anarchist Bookfair. The fair will showcase literature from dozens of American and Canadian radical publishers, and will include strategy sessions, speaker panels, a radical film festival and, of course, books galore. Among other things, the bookfair will explore topics surrounding the worldwide struggles to destroy racism, sexism, classism, transphobia, capitalism, homophobia, ageism, ableism, wage slavery, and all other forms of oppression.

The goal of the weekend is to connect activists, anarchists, academics, and the curious in a show of organization, direct democracy, anti-authoritarianism, autonomy and solidarity.

The Boston Anarchist Bookfair anticipates that hundreds of activists, organizers, students and professors from Boston, the Northeast, and Canada will come together this weekend to discuss and learn from each other in a time in which the ideas, methods, and tactics of anarchism are more important than ever.

The full schedule of events, films and speakers and a list of attending publishers and organizations can be found at http://www.bostonanarchistbookfair.org/.

The Bookfair is being graciously hosted and sponsored by the Progressive Librarians' Guild at Simmons College.
