A Call to participate in the third annual East Bay Anarchist Conversation & Book event
In the city of Oakland, on Ohlone land, in December of 2014 we will host the third annual East Bay Anarchist Bookfair: Conversations & Books where we will present the projects and people who have comprised the East Bay Anarchist community for decades. Our website is at http://eastbayanarchist.com
This year we are partnering with The East Bay Alternative Book & Zine Fest to create a full weekend of books and literature.
Dates & Location
The East Bay Anarchist Bookfair will be held at the Humanist Hall (http://humanisthall.net/wp/) 390 27th Street, Oakland, CA, 94612-3104 on December 7th from 10AM to 8PM. It will include conversations and books during the day.
The East Bay Zine Fest is Saturday Dec 7 from 10-5 at Berkeley City College, 2050 Center Street in Berkeley.
How to request a conversation
Unlike a traditional book fair, and as we did last year, EBAB emphasizes conversations, both for people who are new to anarchist ideas and for more experienced radicals and activists. Our introductory conversations will be respectful, thematic, and facilitated by experienced people. No themes have been proposed yet, as it’s early days. But last year we talked about Illegalism, asynchronous music, William Blake and Thomas Pynchon, and nihilism. If you have a conversation idea or are an experienced facilitator drop us a line at email@example.com
How to request a table
The main room of the hall will house booksellers, distributors, independent presses, and activist groups from all over North America but with an emphasis on the Bay Area and California. 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 $40 which is due with table confirmation). The deadline to request a table is October 15, 2014.
