Anarchist Book Fair This Weekend

The Bay's best newsletter for underground events & news


Overgrown beards, crazy backwoods haircuts, homemade tattoos,  screenprinted patches, questionable hygiene, freegan roadkill eaters'oh yeah and books.  These are the things you will find at the 15th Annual Bay Area Anarchist Book Fair (how fun are stereotypes?!).  Since 1996, the Anarchist Book Fair has been a meeting place for anarchist and independent book and magazine publishers, presses, distributors, and political groups.  The event will feature over 50 vendors of pamphlets, zines, and other anarchistic stuff, an art show, bike valet courtesy of the SF Bicycle Coalition, food from Arizmendi and Other Avenues, plus tons of speakers and panel discussions.  Funnnnn (?).

Their website (even anarchists love wordpress?) has a reminder about the Daylight Savings Time switch (spring forward at 2am Sunday morning), but do real anarchists let the government tell them what time it is?  I think not. Street cred, people, c’mon!

Chloe - Pennywise Reporter

Chloe - Pennywise Reporter

Chloe's youth was split between California and Kauai, frolicking on a macadamia nut farm in the tropics and landing finally in the Bay Area. Raised by super-Jew hippies, and the youngest of three sisters, Chloe learned early the virtues of thrift, economy, and green living. To the chagrin of her parents (who hoped, of course, for a Jewish doctor or lawyer), Chloe has put her degree from UC Berkeley to great use by becoming a folk singer. As "Chloe Makes Music" she plays shows throughout SF and beyond, donning vintage frocks, selling handmade merch, and pinching pennies as she sings for her supper. Calling Berkeley home for the last six years, you can think of Chloe as the website's East Bay Correspondent, opening your eyes to the hippie-filled, tree-hugging, organic-loving, vegan-eating, but way-overlooked and awesome assets of Berkeley, Oakland, and beyond.
