Judson Memorial Church, 55 Washington Square South, Manhattan
New York City, a center of anarchist life, culture, struggle, and ideas for 150
years, will host its 4th annual NYC Anarchist Book Fair, a one-day exposition of
books, zines, pamphlets, art, film/video, and other cultural and very political
productions of the anarchist scene worldwide, on April 17, 2010, at Judson
Memorial Church in Manhattan. In addition there will be two days of panels,
presentations, workshops, and skillshares on April 17 and 18 to provide further
opportunities to learn more and share your own experience and creativity.
The goal of the book fair is to enable people to connect with one another as
well as to provide broader access to the rich and varied field of anarchist
ideas and practices. Now is the perfect time to be exploring those ideas and
practices and bringing them into play in our communities and the world.
We are calling for all anarchist publishers, zinesters, film/videographers,
artists and all members of the worldwide anarchist community. Come meet local
anarchists and others from all over the globe looking to connect with other
anarchists. Whether you are an old anarchist with deep ties and knowledge or
anarcho-curious and looking to find out more about anarchy, the book fair is for
you. The 4th Annual Anarchist Book Fair is a place where the ideas, activism,
ethics, creativity and history of the contemporary anarchist movement come
together in an exciting weekend of community and collaboration.

Diversity is important to us: we are committed to promoting voices typically
underrepresented at mainstream and activist conferences alike, whether for
reasons of race, ethnicity, gender, sexuality, age, income or ability.
The Book Fair has adopted a policy of zero-tolerance for racist, sexist,
queer-phobic, and other disrespectful behavior that works against collective
liberation for all communities.
Food will be available ($), plus childcare (free). Judson Memorial Church is a
wheelchair accessible, smoke-free environment.
