Audio from New World from Below Collaborative Book Party

From Revolution by the Book

As we’ve mentioned on this blog before, AK Press was one of ten collectives that sponsored an anarchist workshop track at the US Social Forum (A New World from Below). This also included a convergence space where NWFB held a shindig celebrating anarchist authors, editors, and publishers. The lovely folks at the defenestrator recorded it (well, they recorded the talks, not the drinking and partying and such). Go here and scroll to the bottom of the page (though you might want to stop along the way and listen to one of their many interviews) .
