Anarchist Bookfair dates and details wanted.

How do folks.

The idea of this site is that all anarchist and radical bookfairs can be listed on one site so that there is less chance of date clashes and better advertising of events. As you can see from the listings below anarchist bookfair organisers seem to have a habit of using the same dates repeatedly which is annoying especially for those like us distributors and publishers who would like to attend them all!

Please add information and dates below as a comment. please leave email or website contact information for your event. When it has been verified we will list it. We will delete comments once the information has been added to the site. If you have trouble leaving a comment, the please email details to info (at)

If you are unsure as to the exact date of your next bookfair but intend to do one then send us the likely dates and we will list it as TBC (to be confirmed).

  7. 3. Libertäre Medienmesse -
    »Zeche Carl«, Wilhelm-Nieswand-Alle 100, in Essen-Altenessen, Germany

    Dear publishers, media projects and collectives,

    we are glad to tell you that the “Libertäre Medienmesse” will take place again in 2014. Because of the publishers' support in 2010 and 2012 we were able to organize 3 days of fair, presentation of projects, readings, culture, events, information, meeting people and making plans for a world beyond crisis and exploitation. The preparations for the second “LiMesse” are in full swing, so we can renew this weekend on 29th-31th august, 2014.

    Of course, some things have basically changed during the last two years.

    In 2010 we offered an alternative to the commercial project “Capitol of Culture RUHR.2010” and countered propaganda about a solid and growing economy, which profits would increase our society's general wealth. Already then it indicated, that it was merely about a growing break through the middle of society.

    This year, the curtain of the “Capitol of Culture” has finally closed. By now, global crisis can also be noticed on communal plain and several saving measures affect the bigger part of population. We want to invite you as libertarian publishers, media projects and collectives to present your self organized and non-commercial politics. The crisis of capitalism is global, so we would appreciate if some international Mediaprojects will take part, too. You could participate with an own presentation in English or just present your work with a booth.

    All important basic data and a review to “LiMesse 2010” and “LiMesse 2012”, most important information for exhibitors and a contact blank is located at (language: German)

    If there are any questions in English, please don't hesitate to ask us at kontakt[ at ]

    Different from the “LiMesse 2010” (city of Oberhausen) and “LiMesse 2012” (city of Bochum) it will this year take place at the “Zeche Carl” social center in Essen, a centre of Ruhr.

    There you'll have a realistic opportunity to present your political work beyond the scene. More information about the location and its sourroundings may be found here.

    If you decide to participate in the “LiMesse”, please declare with the application form.

    You are welcome to suggest own projects, lectures, books etc. for presentation!

    We're looking forward to an exciting and versatile “LiMesse” and hope to see you in august!

    Your Limesse organising collective

  8. We loved the combination of the onsite and online bookfair. The combination was easy to use and gave our parents more flexibility to support our bookfair. I loved the option of having our online orders delivered to our school free of shipping. This service was greatly appreciated by many of our families, allowing them to feel they could order more books through the online book fairs
