Edmonton Anarchist Bookfair

Posted on August 2nd, 2011 in Events

Since 2002, the Edmonton Anarchist Bookfair has provided Anarchists,
activists, and the simply curious the opportunity to learn, share ideas and
connect with others. Vendors and speakers from across North America
attend each year, with around a thousand attendees passing through
during the event. This year’s keynote presentation is by No One is Illegal, an organization that fights for the rights of refugees, migrant workers, and others who suffer at the hands of an unfair system of borders and checkpoints.

This year’s bookfair, situated in Edmonton’s Old Strathcona district,
promises to draw a larger and more diverse crowd than ever before, as the busy crowds of Whyte Avenue and the Old Strathcona Farmers’ Market visit the eighth Edmonton Anarchist Bookfair, a festival of literature, political discussion, and humanity.
