Lineup of talks, panels, workshops announced for 9th Annual New York City Anarchist Book Fair

NEW YORK—Direct democracy, anarchism in immigrant New York, and the state-less revolution in war-torn northern Syria are just a few of the topics visitors can explore at the 9th Annual NYC Anarchist Book Fair, which returns to Judson Memorial Church on Sat., April 18, 2015. This year's Book Fair will host 19 talks, panels, and workshops devoted to anarchist theory, history, and the many ways that activists today are challenging the state and capitalism.

The Book Fair will take place from 11am to 6:15pm at Judson Memorial Church, 55 Washington Square South, in Manhattan. Although most presentations will be held at Judson Church, some will take place at the New School, 86 Fifth Avenue, a short walk north of Judson Church. The schedule of talks, panels, and workshops is posted at; please check the website for updates of times and locations.

“Today, millions of people around the world are tired of the state, of an economic system that benefits only the rich, of a political order that destroys communities, enforces racism and homophobia, and turns our lives into a Darwinian struggle,” says Rae Valentine, a Book Fair organizer. “Anarchism is an incredibly diverse movement reaching all corners of the world. This year's Book Fair highlights people's struggles from South Sudan to Native American nations to anti-fascist action in Europe. We'll also be looking at the rich heritage of anarchism in New York and how anarchists are organizing in our city today.”

The NYC Anarchist Book Fair is free to the public. It provides a safe space for activists to meet and organize and where the anarcho-curious can get informed about the movement against capitalism and the state. The Book Fair will feature exhibits by over 60 anarchist publishers, artisans, and organizers. For more information about the 2015 New York City Anarchist Book Fair, please email
