Book Club

Reading is Revolutionary!

Join our weekly book club and explore leading and classic theorists, practitioners, and visionaries through critical, communist, anarchist, and Indigenous lenses.


Each week we read 20-50 pages or listen/watch 30-60 minutes of content.

Meetings take place online on weekdays.

Monthly schedules are determined collectively but generally run from 7:30 to 8:30pm NT/ 7:00 to 8:00pm AT.
