After some hesitation, we have sadly come to the conclusion that we need to cancel this year’s Anarchist Bookfair.
We have come to realize that we will not be able to organize a book fair that lives up to previous years’ events and therefore we prefer to cancel.
We are very sorry for this. We hope that the next year will come new people who have the desire to drive the anarchist bookfair on in Stockholm.

Two writers and activists from the infamous CrimthInc. collective are coming to Sweden on a speaking tour. Together with Södergården, Bokhandeln INFo, and Stockholms LS Studiekommitté, the Anarchist Bookfair collective will organize a talk in Stockholm on November 1, 2012 (you are more than welcome to spread the Facebook event). There will also be talks in Malmö, Jönköping, and Göteborg.

Stockholm’s Anarchist Bookfair organized a table with Swedish anarchist books, journals, and posters at the big international anarchist gathering in St. Imier, Switzerland, in August 2012. The gathering was held because the so-called Anarchist International was founded in St. Imier in 1872. You can find more information about the gathering here.

The program for the 2012 bookfair is ready now! You can choose from more than 30 presentations, discussions, workshops, etc. There will also be an afterparty at Torpet in Orhem. Find all the details here! The latest addition to the program is the Icelandic poet Eiríkur Örn Norðdahl whose readings are certain to be a unique experience.
You can also check out the stalls that have already been booked. The list will be updated until right before the fair!
The “people’s kitchen” Automat will set up their tent, and there will be a crèche and children’s activities from 10 am to 6 pm.
If you can, please help us spread the Facebook-event!

We are very happy that Mötesplats Sputnik, only a few minutes from Skarpnäcks kulturhus, will become a part of the Anarchist Bookfair on June 16! We will have workshops there, and Sputnik’s café as well as the crèche will be open! You do not want to miss checking out the place if you already are in Skarpnäck!

There will be an afterparty after the bookfair in Orhem’s lovely Kaffestugan Torpet! Music, good food, and a wonderful place to relax in the forest after a day of book stalls, workshops, and discussions. We are trying to arrange camping options in the vicinity!
For those who cannot/don’t want to camp, we, together with the organizers of the No Border Camp (June 17-24), are trying to arrange different accommodation:
On June 16, there will be the Anarchist Bookfair in Stockholm, and the week thereafter a No Border Camp. We are expecting over 1000 people to attend the bookfair, many of whom are not from Stockholm. These people need accommodation – some of them arrive a couple of days early and stay longer, especially this year with the No Border Camp. There are also people who cannot stay in tents due to medical reasons. We need help with finding a place to stay for everyone, so if you have a spare bed – for a day or for a week, it doesn’t matter – please get in touch: book[at]anarchistbookfairsweden.se. Let us know how many people you can host and for how long!
