The 2018 Malmö Anarchist Bookfair is set to be held this weekend from the 15 to 17. Below is a description of the event from their website, you can find more information including the schedule on their website here.
It’s 2018 and, once again, the specter of war haunts us—in the headlines as well as in the depressing certainty that the politicians and other elites who rule the societies of this world persist in maintaining the exploitative death-culture hierarchy of white-hetero-patriarchal Imperial-colonial-capitalism.
◆ Join us at the Judson Memorial, which has hosted the NYC Anarchist Book Fair nearly every year since its inception, and it will again in 2018 ◆
The weekend of June 22-24 marks the second year that Asheville community members host the Another Carolina Anarchist Bookfair, a series of free workshops, panels, talks, vendors, parties and concerts, to promote community building and resource sharing in regional networks of anti-authoritarian organizers.

Between the 16 and 17 of June, the Anarchist bookfair will take place in Malmö, Sweden.
The first aim is presentation of books and publications inside the anarchist spectrum, also holding talks, discussions and workshops.
We see the need of learning from different experiences, sharing ideas and ongoing struggles. Spreading those theories and practices nourishes our movement locally and globally and makes our community stronger. This is why we want to invite people from different areas to come here and participate in this event.
The fourteenth Zagreb Anarchist Bookfair will take place in Zagreb from April 6th to April 8th, 2018. The bookfair will take place in AKC Medika, Pierottijeva 11.
Anarchist Bookfair in Zagreb (ASK – Anarhisticki sajam knjiga) is annual anarchist event and first eleven bookfairs went well, and we hope to bring in more and more people every year as participants, publishers, groups, projects – whoever is interested in what the bookfair has to offer.

When Ahkok attended London’s anarchist book fair last year, he was stunned by the scale of it all: some 60 booths and 50 forums, from heated discussions—one was cut short by a fight—to emotional healing workshops for social activists. There was even a section for kids, because “Why can’t there be more play facilities for children at protest sites?”
Ahkok and his friends soon decided that Hong Kong, too, needs an anarchist book fair.
I hate having to denounce events and collectives that at least, nominally, are associated with anarchism. In the instance of the Los Angeles Anarchist Book Fair (LAABF) and the collective that is implementing it, I have no choice. The LAABF has encouraged hatred among comrades, they have provided a platform for state socialists and marxist pseudo-economic analysis, and they have banned one of the most important North American anarchist publishing groups from tabling. Payback time.
We Los Angeles Anarchist Book Fair (LAABF) Collective members have decided not to accept your application to table and share our space at this year’s Book Fair. We have refunded your Paypal transfer of $150.00 for Little Black Cart (LBC).
Why, you may ask? First, we know that a physical fight broke out at the recent Seattle ABF over the publication of Atassa, and we wish to avoid a repetition of any such occurrence at our ABF. More importantly, however, giving a platform to ITS is completely unacceptable in our view, given its wanton violence against women, ordinary people, and humanity in general.
