Hi everyone,

You're receiving this message because you signed up for updates for the 2011 
Boston Anarchist Bookfair. With 12 films, 20 workshops, and 30+ tabling 
organizations, we can't wait to see you at Simmons College tomorrow! 

This weekend, get excited for literature from dozens of radical publishers from around the northeast, strategy sessions, 
speaker panels, a radical film festival and, of course, books galore!

Workshops and speakers include everything from 
"#OccupyEverything: Occupy Wallstreet, Boston, and Beyond," which will 
feature activists from Oakland, Boston and Philly; to anarchist paper 
presentations; to speaker Tamer Mehanna, the brother of local target of 
FBI repression Tarek Mehanna, on political prisoners.
See all the awesome workshops here: http://bostonanarchistbookfair.org/schedule

Films include 2011 Sundance Film Festival award winner "If a Tree Falls: The 
Story of the Earth Liberation Front" and "Maggots and Men", a queer, 
utopian re-visioning of the Kronstadt Uprising of 1921.
