Thank you Pittsburgh

25 Mar

This weekend my family and I were back in Pittsburgh, where we had spent almost a year back in 2011 while my partner went to grad school. I got a chance to speak about my book Nine Years of Anarchist Agitation: The History of the Boston Anti Authoritarian Movement and Other Essays at the Big Idea bookstore. It was wonderful to see so many of my comrades and friends from our time in that city. Folks filled the basement of the bookstore and after I told my story we discussed anarchist organization and participation in social struggles. It was very interesting hearing about locals’ experiences with Occupy Pittsburgh, updates on Pittsburghers for Public Transit, the Shadbush Collective and other anti-fracking struggles, and I got to share news from the Insomnia Cookies campaign waged by our local Boston Industrial Workers of the World, and the formation of the Black Rose Anarchist Federation.

 

We sold out of all of the copies of the book that I’d brought, but I just ordered some more to be sent to the Big Idea. So for the handful of friends who couldn’t make it (or forgot which day it was!) 3 copies of my book will be arriving at the Big Idea around April 7th. You can also order copies online here: https://www.createspace.com/4055947

 

Thanks again to all our Pittsburgh friends and comrades, hope our paths cross again soon
