The Howard Zinn Bookfair, a celebration of the books that make us rethink our roles in the world and connect people with hidden histories, will be held at CCSF Mission Campus.
The Howard Zinn Book Fair is an annual celebration of People’s History, Past Present, and Future gathering together authors, zinesters, bloggers and publishers for a day of nearly 60 readings, panel discussions and workshops exploring the value of dissident histories towards building a better future.
In the spirit of the late historian Howard Zinn, this fair recognizes the stories of the ways that everyday people have risen to propose a world beyond empires big and small.
