The Howard Zinn Book Fair Returns in 2022

The Howard Zinn Book Fair returns in a series of events around the San Francisco bay area. Check their Facebook page for registration information and updates.


For Anti-Fascist Futures

SAT., DEC. 3 • 7pm PST • In person

A panel discussion with Elspeth Iralu, Dian Million, Nicole Nguyen, Yazan Zahzah, Alyosha Goldstein that will explore the significance of fascism for understanding authoritarianism today and centers anti-imperialist movements of Black, Indigenous, and colonized peoples.

We must, as For Antifascist Futures urges, take antifascism as a major imperative of movements for social change. But we must not limit our analysis or historical understanding of the rise of the right-wing authoritarianism in our times by rooting it in mid-twentieth century Europe. Instead we turn to a collection of powerful BIPOC voices who offer a range of anticolonial, Indigenous, and Black Radical traditions to think with.

Zein El-Amine & Aimee Suzara celebrate publishing of Is This How You Eat a Watermelon?

Thurs., Dec. 8 • 6pm PST • In person

City Lights in partnership with Radix Media & The Howard Zinn Book Fair celebrates the publication of Is This How You Eat a Watermelon? by Lebanese-born poet and writer Zein El-Amine.

Joined by Filipino-American poet, and playwright Aimee Suzara, this event brings together two story-tellers who trace their families’ respective transits from lands set ablaze to lands warped by the American Dream, all the while capturing those brief sojourns where the exiles rest, and reaffirm life before continuing on their journeys.

Location: This event will take place in Kerouac Alley, between City Lights and Vesuvio Cafe, between Columbus and Grant Avenues. It is free to the public  • More information
