Mid-Atlantic Radical Bookfair

The bookfair is being run on an all volunteer basis, and entirely on donations and tabling fees. If you'd like to help us pay for all of this, Red Emma's is happy to take donations: , just let us know it's for the bookfair

More importantly, we're really hoping to get a lot of help from the mid-atlantic community in helping us out the weekend of the bookfair. If you're interested in helping out with staffing the bookfair, or with pitching in to help Food Not Bombs serve up some delicious free food during the Bookfair weekend, drop us a line at bookfair@redemmas.org. We're also looking really hard for places in or near Baltimore to house all these people coming from out of town to present or table, so if you have some space to share, talk to our housing committee at bookfairhousing@redemmas.org.

Yours for a well-read revolution,
