[San Fancisco] 12th Annual Bay Area Anarchist Bookfair

is now a two-day event!

SATURDAY, March 17, 10-6pm
SUNDAY, March 18, 11-5pm

County Fair Building in Golden Gate Park,
Ninth Avenue and Lincoln Way,

The speaker and panel schedule has been posted. There’s a lot to see!

Both days of the Bookfair (March 17 & 18) include:

MAIN BOOKFAIR ROOM: With over 50 booksellers, distributors, independent presses and political groups from the Bay Area, the west coast and North America. This is the heart of the Bay Area Anarchist Bookfair.

SPEAKERS and PANELS: During both days, lively panel discussions will tackle subjects ranging from “Resisting State Repression” to “Power and Democracy in Revolutionary Latin America” to young women celebrating “The F-Word.” Renowned authors and social activists Chris Carlsson, Roxanne Dunbar-Ortiz, James Kelman, Ward Churchill, Michelle Tea and others will speak on topics pertaining to anarchists and non-anarchists alike.

The Bay Area Anarchist Bookfair has become one of the largest annual gatherings of anarchists and radical books in the world. Last year over four thousand people, from every walk of life, locals from San Francisco and visitors from around the world, enjoyed good conversation, speakers, art, and of course..books!

In 1996, the first Bay Area Anarchist Bookfair began as a celebration of the 20th anniversary of Bound Together Bookstore, a collectively run anarchist bookstore located on San Francisco’s Haight Street. The Bound Together Bookstore continues to sell radical books every day, and the collective has organized the bookfair every year.

As always, everyone is invited!
