(en) Canada, Edmonton Anarchist Bookfair: September 1-3, 2006

Date Sat, 29 Jul 2006 09:17:00 +0300

In 2005, the Edmonton Anarchist Bookfair provided the public with
the opportunity to learn, share ideas and connect with others over a
free three-day event. Close to 1000 people we able to access radical
books, see independent documentaries and participate in skill-share
workshops. The event attracted vendors, speakers and participants
from all over Western Canada. We received very positive full-page
articles in both of Edmonton’s mainstream newspapers, reviews
of our feature film presentation in both arts weekly magazines, and
multiple interviews on independent radio stations.
More importantly, it gave Anarchists from throughout Western
Canada and beyond a chance to meet, share stories and ideas, and
gather new literature and learn, education being the heart and soul of
the Anarchist project.

It was a resounding success, and this year's bookfair, September 1-3rd
of 2006, looks to be even better.

In 2006, we hope to involve additional vendors and speakers, expand
our pre-event fundraising, and continue to provide an open forum for
Anarchists and non-Anarchists can share ideas, read books, and be
challenged. Both the Anarchist and non-Anarchist communities will
benefit from this event.

Some highlights will include:

Anarchist writers Allan Antliff and David Graeber (tentative)

Workshops on subjects ranging from community gardening to DIY to

Vendors from Canada and the US bringing interesting, informative,
and rare literature, videos, and more!

Free childcare!

Tasty food by donation.

Our Edmonton, City of Champions, Kronstadt on the North
Saskatchewan, the Barcelona of the Prairies -- a great place to dine,
see a film, socialise, or plot revolution. A city of culture that has a
working class heart.
