Date Fri, 12 Jan 2007 17:57:53 +0200


When: Sat., April 14, 2007, 11am-7pm -- Where: Judson Memorial Church, 55 Washington Square South, Manhattan New York City, a center of anarchist life, culture, struggle, and ideas for 150 years, has never hosted an Anarchist Book Fair. That's about to change!
The 1st Annual, 1st Ever NYC Anarchist Book Fair, will host a one-day exposition of books, zines, pamphlets, art, film/video, and other cultural and very political productions of the anarchist scene worldwide, on Sat., Apr. 14, 2007 at Judson Memorial Church in Manhattan. The 1st Annual, 1st Ever NYC Anarchist Book Fair will feature over 60 tables as well as an art gallery. Panels, presentations, workshops, and skillshares will provide further opportunities to learn more and share your own experience and creativity.

You know you should attend the 1st Annual, 1st Ever NYC Anarchist Book Fair if ...
- You're an anarchist publisher, zinester, film/videographer, artist
- You're a member of the worldwide anarchist community
- You're an anarchist based in NYC and looking to connect with other anarchists here
- You're anarcho-curious and looking to find out more about the contemporary anarchist movement, its ideas, ethics, activism or just to find out more about the community
