Now that the dogs have recovered from the pyrotechnic celebration of Colonization, Neoliberalism, and Nationalism we are ready to announce our Summer titles for 2015. This summer features one homage, some mischievousness, and some new titles on old themes.
Spring was eventful this year. Alongside the solid Bay Area bookfair and our sister project the BASTARD conference, were Montreal, NYC, and the brand new (and energetic and affirming) Orange County bookfair. We can't wait to see what they do next year.

From San Diego Reader
As the 33rd annual book fair in Tijuana was coming to an end, a completely different book fair was starting up. The first fair of independent publications hosted by Raices Infoshop, Food Not Bombs, Publicaciones #0, and other collectives took place in the plaza by the arch (El Reloj) in downtown Tijuana on July 3rd, 4th, and 5th. With no sponsorship of any kind, the fair was as DIY as it could possibly be.

June, the time of perfect young summer, the fulfillment of the promise of the earlier months, and with as yet no sign to remind one that its fresh young beauty will ever fade.”
