LA Anarchist Bookfair Reportback (with photos)!
AK Press had a presence at the First Annual Los Angeles Anarchist Bookfair held last weekend at the venerable Southern California Library in South Central LA. The event was a huge success, thanks to the hard work of the bookfair’s tireless organizers, attendees ready to dialogue and learn, and a spirit of resistance that seems to grow stronger everyday.
The following photos (all by Chuck Morse) will give you a feel for the event.
