Montreal's 4th Annual Anarchist Bookfair -- the largest anarchist
gathering in North America after the San Franciso Bay Area Anarchist
Bookfair -- is a little more than one month away!! This e-mail callout
includes updated information about the bookfair, including the more than
twenty workshops and panels that will take place on May 17 and May 18.

This year's bookfair will feature more than 50 booksellers and groups from

Workshop presenters include Bo Brown, Ashanti Alston, Eric Drooker and
Cindy Milstein. Festival of Anarchy events will take place between May 1
