London Radical Bookfair 2016 in New Cross

Last year's London Radical Bookfair, held at a warehouse in Tanner Street SE1, was a great success. The 2016 event is even closer to home (for me at least), taking place at Goldsmiths  in New Cross on 7 May 2016:

'Radical booksellers, publishers, artists and activists of all stripes are setting up in teh Great Hall at Goldsmiths University to host the 4th London Radical Bookfair.  With over 130 exhibitors and 20 guest speakers, this will be a unique gathering of progressive readers, thinkers and doers, in a celebration of radical publishing and politics. 
The free event is organised by the Alliance of Radical Booksellers (ARB),  which formed in 2011 to raise awareness of the radical book trade. The fair provides an annual opportunity to bring Britain’s radical booksellers together to meet in person with publishers and the reading public. And it’s also an opportunity for us to host award ceremonies for the ARB’s 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 give talks and participate in panel discussions throughout the day'.
