http://www. anarchistbookfair. net/index. php

The Second Annual NYC Anarchist Bookfair (2008) 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 Saturday, April 12, 2008 at Judson Memorial Church in Manhattan.

The Second Annual NYC Anarchist Bookfair will feature over 40 tables as well as an art gallery. Panels, presentations, workshops, and skill shares will provide further opportunities to learn more and share your own experience and creativity. You know you should attend the 2st NYC Anarchist Bookfair 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.

To contact the NYC Anarchist Book Fair Organizing Collective to volunteer, make a donation, or get more information, email us at info [at] anarchistbookfair. net. To apply for tables or to propose presentations, panels, workshops, or skillshares, see the forms elsewhere on this site. Diversity is important to us! Selection preference will be given to proposals that include voices typically underrepresented at mainstream and activist conferences alike. Food will be available ($), plus childcare (free). Handicapped/wheelchair accessible. Smoke-free environment. The Book Fair has adopted a policy of zero-tolerance for racist, sexist, queer-phobic, and other disrespectful behavior that works against an environment of tolerance and inclusiveness for a truly diverse range of communities.

Directions: Judson Memorial Church is located on the south side of Washington Square Park between Thompson and Sullivan Streets. Take the A, C, E, F trains to West 4th Street station; the R to 8th Street-NYU; or the 1 train to Christopher Street-Sheridan Square. The M1, M2, M3, M5, M6 and M8 bus lines also serve the area.
