Annual Derry Radical Bookfair Celebrates Its Third Year

DRB-2019On Saturday 26th January, Pilots Row Community Centre will once again play host to the 3rd annual Derry Radical Bookfair in Rossville Street.

Organisers have confirmed that the Bogside venue will now host one of the largest number of independent radical press, book sellers, publishers and distributors from the length of Ireland with participants travelling from Scotland, England and Wales for the one day event.

A spokesperson for the Derry Radical Bookfair said “Following on from previous years book fairs we have had a fantastic response to such a successful event by making this happen annually for those of us across the northwest to access literature not normally found in mainstream bookshops. It will also give an opportunity to independent book
sellers and publishers a chance to network and create important links in order to continue their work.

“All participants are welcome to the Radical Bookfair with different visions, ideas, practices and radical traditions. Books of local, national and international interests including social and labour history as well as themes covering radical feminism, queer liberation, anarchism, marxism, republicanism and environmentalism. There will
also be a number of campaign groups tabling stalls in an effort to highlight ongoing human rights and social justice issues.

“Throughout the day there will be a number of talks and book launches planned which will again add to the day long event within Pilots Row.”

Derry Radical Bookfair takes place on Saturday 26th January from 12pm
until 5pm at the Pilots Row Community Centre in Rossville Street.
