Tacoma Anarchist Bookfair

Oct 09

Updates…

Just heard back from Tacoma Food Not Bombs that they’ll be providing a lunchtime feed during Saturday’s talks!  Keep checking out the tumblr page for more detailed descriptions of the talks planned throughout the coming week. 

As you may have noticed in the schedule, we are doing things a little differently this year.  We have ten distribution projects lined up to table their works throughout the bookfair, but we have added some 30-minute show-and-tell slots to the days’ events as well.  Several of our tabling distros will use this time to talk about their projects and any specific texts they may want to discuss. 

See you in two weeks!
