“Throughout the day, we always have a constant stream of participants from native politicos to political tourists, and the curious book lovers on the hunt for something new or old of interest.

“We host a broad range of stalls from a local or national interest, on feminism or queer politics, to republicanism, Marxism and of course anarchism. Likewise we also have a great mixture of book launches, talks or discussions which compliments the book and information stalls presented.

“At a time when the world seems to be going down the tubes socially, environmentally or politically, it’s vital that we create a space, such as the Derry Radical Bookfair, so that those seeking away out of this chaos can arm themselves with ideas to create a new world beyond what we’re currently being subjected to.”

Derry Radical Bookfair kicks off on Saturday, January 27 from 12pm until 5pm at the Pilots Row Community Centre in Rossville Street. For more details please visit
