The Howard Zinn Book Fair is an annual celebration of People’s History, Past Present and Future. We gather together for a day of readings, panel discussions and workshops exploring the value of dissident histories towards building a better future. In the spirit of the late historian Howard Zinn we recognize the stories of the ways that everyday people have risen to propose a world beyond empires big and small.
