New York City Anarchist Book Fair to celebrate 10th anniversary, Sat., April 16, 2016
NEW YORK—In the decade since it debuted in 2007, the NYC Anarchist Book Fair has become a premier event for anarchists from across North America and around the world, and a New York institution. It’s a gathering place for the anarchist community, a forum for activists, scholars, and creative artists, and an opportunity for the curious to learn about an anti-state, anti-capitalist political tradition that’s still alive and thriving and challenging the established order.
Each year, the NYC Anarchist Book Fair hosts over 60 exhibitors including publishers, writers, designers, artists, musicians, and organizers.
Judson Memorial Church, at the south end of Washington Square Park—the neighborhood that is one of the birthplaces of the anarchist movement in the US—has hosted the NYC Anarchist Book Fair nearly every year, and will do so again in 2016.
Art Festival Friday, April 15, 7pm-5am
Book Fair Saturday, April 16, 11am-6pm
