BACKGROUND

The Montreal Anarchist Bookfair is the largest anarchist cultural
gathering in northeastern North America, and an important exchange of
anarchist and anti-authoritarian ideas. The Bookfair is for anarchist and
non-anarchists alike, in English, French and Spanish, with participants
from all over North America and beyond.

Anarchist Bookfair events include workshops, readings, films,
presentations, walking tours and much more. Once again, the Anarchist
Bookfair will be followed -- on Sunday, May 16 -- by a full day dedicated
to anarchist-themed workshops and presentations. As in the past, a
"Festival of Anarchy" will take place during the weeks preceeding the
Bookfair, with diverse events organized by anarchists and
anti-authoritarian groups.
