For the third consecutive year, Montreal will be hosting the Anarchist Book and Freedom Fair. The Bookfair has become an important community event, attracting at least 1000 visitors to the main Bookfair space for each of the past two years.

There will be at least sixty tables representing booksellers and distributors, as well as anarchist groups and collectives, from all over Montreal, Quebec, Canada and the United States. There are also invitations extended to participants from Europe and Latin America.

As in the past two years, the Bookfair will be part of a Festival of Anarchy during the month of May in Montreal. The Festival, currently in the planning stages, aims to encompass music shows, spoken word and poetry cabarets, panels and lectures, anarchist soccer and hockey, a radical Motherís Day, and much more.

The Bookfair is by donation. In the past, proceeds from the Bookfair has supported local projects like Books to Prisoners and the Committee of the Unemployed, as well as an anarchist library in Mexico City, and a land occupation project in Uruguay.
