It's almost here, the last Canadian anarchist bookfair of the year, the ever popular Edmonton Anarchist Bookfair, now in its seventh season. last year the event drew over 1000 people, and this years promises to be even better.
Oct. 3 -5
Ukrainian Centre
11018- 97 St.
Edmonton, Alberta
Here's a brief announcement from their website. Go there for more details.
Welcome to Edmonton!
Our annual Edmonton Anarchist Bookfair gives anarchists, allies and other friendly people throughout western Canada and beyond a chance to meet, share stories and ideas, and gather new literature and learn, education being the heart and soul of anarchist projects. We have been putting on the Bookfair annually since 2001.
Learn, Share, Connect!
In 2007, the Edmonton Anarchist Bookfair provided the public with the opportunity to learn, share ideas and connect with others over a free three-day event. Close to 1000 people were able to access radical books, see independent documentaries and participate in skill-share workshops. The event attracted vendors, speakers and participants from all over Western Canada. We received very positive full-page articles in both of Edmonton's mainstream newspapers, reviews of our feature film presentation in both arts weekly magazines, and multiple interviews on independent radio stations.

Thanks Molly, could you let us know if there is a fair in Ottawa? I suspect that it would be overshadowed by the Writers Festival but all the same, it would be neat to check out.

None that I know of, but I try and keep up on all the anarchist bookfairs in Canada. This year this included Victoria, Calgary, Edmonton, Winnipeg, Hamilton and Montreal. Toronto has had a bookfair in past years but not this one. Hopefully Ottawa will join the club soon.
