Progressive Library Skillshare Pittsburgh

Progressive Library Skillshare
September 7 & 8, 2007 - Pittsburgh, PA
completely FREE and open to everyone

This free two-day event will bring together library workers, library lovers, zine enthusiasts, book artists, publishers, and community members to explore the relationship between library work and social justice.

The RNC Guide from Republican National Convention protests in New York City in August/September 2004 is back online! This is the first project Radical Reference librarians worked on as members of Radical Reference. We're between the mechanics and the hustlers in the credits.
