Call For Proposals for ACAB2017 ends March 31st. 2017

The first ever Another Carolina Anarchist Bookfaire in Asheville, NC, will be held on May 6th as a part of a weekend of events.
So far we have over a dozen workshops, author events, and discussions planned for the bookfaire proper alongside herb walks, waterfall hikes, concerts and more. And we wanted to take an opportunity for a last push and solicit once more for folks interested in presenting skills & knowledge, engaging in debate and deepen their friendships-as-forms-of-life at the ACAB2017. We'll stop accepting submissions before April 1st, so if you're in a band or DJ and want to play one of the concerts or an author or activist and want to share your experience and thoughts, please visit and fill out a form.
