The Seattle Anarchist Book Fair is an opportunity for old friends to come together, new connections be made, and for those new to anarchy to have an opportunity to engage with the many and varied perspectives of what has been called the Beautiful Idea.

While anarchists are often portrayed through our direct confrontations with the state and capitalism, a book fair allows a space where people have more of an opportunity to converse, exchange ideas and, hopefully, learn from each other.

Here we can find commonalities and intersecting goals, as well as further flesh out those places where our individual projects and desires diverge.

The book fair organizers want to encourage all anarchist, autonomous voices, so there will be some DIY tabling spaces offered outside as mutual aid. Please check in with us online or the organizers and the info desk during the event to request a DIY table and helping out.
