While we are in transition and searching for a stable home base, we will continue to produce events with some of our neighborhood partners.

The AltLib Popup Series will present roving events to continue supporting expansive art projects and dig deep for uncommon cultural exchanges. If you’re interested in setting up a show with us, please read our booking page and send us an e-mail.

Portland Anarchist Book Fair

October 9, 2021 - October 10, 2021

Radical literature projects from around the region converge for the weekend on an elementary school in Portland! We’ll be mobbing down with a couple tables and some of our recent publications and literature distro!

October 9th and 10th
Outside Buckman Elementary on SE 18th and Pine
1pm to 6pm both days
All ages.

We’re really excited to announce the 2021 Anarchist Bookfair in so-called Portland, Oregon. The weekend of the 9th and 10th will include books, zines, art, food, friends, workshops, and other fun shit. We’ll be able to share and connect with anarchist publishers, artists, distros and other anarchics from all over Turtle Island. Please wear a mask.

We welcome folks to show up and table on either or both days. There is also still space for more workshops, talks, and other activities.

If you plan on tabling, please try to bring your own table. If you need a table and cannot get one, reach out to us beforehand.

Email if you have any questions or need anything.

For joy and anarchy in Portland and everywhere!
