The London Radical Bookfair returns for its fourth year

BOOKSELLERS, ARTISTS and activists of all stripes will be coming together this weekend at Goldsmiths University in a celebration of radical and progressive publishing.

With over 100 exhibitors and 30 guest speakers, the London Radical Bookfair 2016 will be a unique gathering of readers, thinkers and doers.

Now in its fourth year, this free event is organised by the Alliance of Radical Booksellers (ARB), which formed in 2011 to raise awareness of the radical book trade.

The book fair provides an annual opportunity to bring the UK’s radical booksellers together to meet in person with publishers and the reading public.

The book fair also allows the ARB to award its two annual book prizes: the Bread and Roses Award for Radical Publishing and the Little Rebels Children’s Book Award. Shortlisted authors from the two awards will be giving talks and participating in panel discussions throughout the day as part of a programme which will culminate in the announcement of the winning titles by the guest judges in the Great Hall.

Alongside the programme of author talks, the fair will host a mini-conference looking at different aspects of the housing crisis. The conference is being run in solidarity with the Goldsmiths Cut The Rent students, who are currently engaged in a rent strike in protest at the extortionate cost of student accommodation. A number of other students across the University of London are taking part in a similar strike. The emphasis on the programme will be one of practical advice and activity.
