Call to participate in the first annual East Bay Anarchist Conversation & Book event

In the city of Oakland, on Ohlone land, in December of 2014 we will be hosting the third annual East Bay Anarchist Bookfair: Conversations & Books. This event will present the projects and people that have comprised the East Bay Anarchist community for decades. Our website is at

Dates & Location

The event will be held at the Humanist Hall ( 390 27th Street, Oakland, CA, 94612-3104 on December 7th. The event will include conversation and books during the day and entertainment during the evening.

How to request a conversation

Unlike a traditional bookfair, our event is going to emphasize conversations, for both people who are new to anarchist ideas and as well as experienced radicals and activists. We would like our introductory conversations to be respectful, thematic, and facilitated by experienced people. Proposed themes so far have included Nature, the event, violence, and Crisis. Our other conversations will involve developed conversations about anarchist practice (eg activism) and ideas (ie theory). If you have a conversation idea or are an experienced facilitator drop us a line at

How to request a table

The main room of the hall will include booksellers, distributors, independent presses and activist groups from all over North America but with an emphasis on the Bay Area and California in general. If you’d like to table this year, provide a short description of your group and the materials you intend to distribute. The fee for tabling at the event is 10% of your sales (minimum of $20 which is due once table confirmation). The deadline to request a table is August 15, 2012. Drop a line at
