Announcing the 4th Annual NYC Anarchist Book Fair

April 17, 2010
11am-7pm
Judson Memorial Church, 55 Washington Square South, Manhattan

New York City, a center of anarchist life, culture, struggle, and
ideas for 150 years, will host its 4th annual NYC Anarchist Book
Fair, a one-day exposition of books, zines, pamphlets, art,
film/video, and other cultural and very political productions of the
anarchist scene worldwide, on April 17, 2010, at Judson Memorial
Church in Manhattan. In addition there will be two days of panels,
presentations, workshops, and skillshares on April 17 and 18 to
provide further opportunities to learn more and share your own
experience and creativity.

The goal of the book fair is to enable people to connect with one
another as well as to provide broader access to the rich and varied
field of anarchist ideas and practices. Now is the perfect time to
be exploring those ideas and practices and bringing them into play
in our communities and the world.

We are calling for all anarchist publishers, zinesters,
film/videographers, artists and all members of the worldwide
anarchist community. Come meet local anarchists and others from all
over the globe looking to connect with other anarchists. Whether
you are an old anarchist with deep ties and knowledge or
anarcho-curious and looking to find out more about anarchy, the book
fair is for you. The 4th Annual Anarchist Book Fair is a place where
the ideas, activism, ethics, creativity and history of the
contemporary anarchist movement come together in an exciting weekend
of community and collaboration.

For more information about the NYC Anarchist Book Fair, please visit
our website at:
http://www.anarchistbookfair.net.

To contact the NYC Anarchist Book Fair Organizing Collective to
volunteer, make a donation, or get more information, email us at:
info[at]anarchistbookfair[dot]net.

To apply for a table or to propose a presentation, panel, workshop,
or skillshare, see the forms below or visit our website,
http://www.anarchistbookfair.net.

Diversity is important to us: we are committed to promoting voices
typically underrepresented at mainstream and activist conferences
alike, whether for reasons of race, ethnicity, gender, sexuality,
age, income or ability.

The Book Fair has adopted a policy of zero-tolerance for racist,
sexist, queer-phobic, and other disrespectful behavior that works
against collective liberation for all communities.

Food will be available ($), plus childcare (free). Judson Memorial
Church is a wheelchair accessible, smoke-free environment.
