Anarchist Book Fair – TODAY – Manila

The Humboldt Anarchist Bookfair (1611 Peninsula Dr, Manila, CA) on  Saturday December 14th features a full day of workshops on a variety of  topics, guest speakers, and great deals on independent and hard-to-find  books and zines. Bring your kids to play at the Kid’s Corner and enjoy  some delicious local food while meeting people who are working to make  our community and the world a more revolutionary place.

The 6th Humboldt Anarchist Bookfair on Saturday December 14th is Saturday, 10am to 6pm! Here’s a peek of some of the authors who will be  speaking at this awesome event:

Iain Boal is author of *West of Eden: Communes and  Utopia in Northern California,” a book that explores the deep historical roots of collective life on rural communes of Mendocino and Sonoma, as  well as communal households of the Black Panthers in Oakland, and the  Native American occupation of Alcatraz

James Davis is an Irish writer and film maker based  in California. He is co-author of “Catastrophism,” a book that explores  the politics of apocalypse on the left and right—and examines why the  lens of catastrophe can distort our understanding of the dynamics at the heart of these numerous disasters—and fatally impede our ability to  transform the world. His documentary films include Meeting Room, Safety  Orange, and Autonomy and a Song.

Peter McCoy is co-founder of Radical Mycology, a movement and social philosophy based on accessibly teaching the importance of mushrooms and other fungi for personal, societal, and ecological health.

Radical Mycology is based on the belief that the lifecycles of fungi and their interactions in nature serve as powerful learning tools for how humans can best relate to each other and steward the world they live in.
