Anarchist Bookfair 2007

A new venue has been announced for London's foremost literary event, the annual Anarchist Bookfair. This year the Bookfair will be held at Queen Mary's College, (Mile End Road) on Saturday, 27th October. Details of meetings and events at the Bookfair will be announced nearer the date. If you have never been - put it in your diary now. If you have been before you won't need a further reminder.

"This year, due to circumstances beyond our control, we are moving venue again. This time the Bookfair will be held in the EastEnd of London. A place where anarchism first took root in Britain, emerging from the radical clubs and socialist groups that flourished in East London in the late 19th Century, coming out of the great poverty but also powerful solidarity and collective struggle that existed here; struggles that are still played out today as the Olympic dream is revealed as a nightmare of social exclusion and gentrification. This year's event could be a powerful link not only to our past but a different vision of the future."

Details of the programme will be posted on the Bookfair's website:
