Scheduling Adjustment

In light of an anonymous call for a march the same evening as the fair, we are ending the book fair early and beginning the dance party late to accommodate those who may wish to attend this march. We are asking tablers to begin cleaning up at 6pm with the hopes of being done by 6:30pm. The dance party start time has been pushed back to 10pm.

Event Submission Deadline:

12:00am Sunday Morning, EST.  Please have your event submitted by midnight this weekend so we can properly coordinate the schedule.

Volunteers Needed

If you’re interested in helping out at the book fair, especially at the entrance/welcome table or as a child care volunteer, please get in touch with us at phillyanarchistbookfair[at]gmail[dot]com  Thanks!
