I originally got excited about doing this fair because I knew we have SO MUCH material that would find an audience there, many books that don’t get much attention unless someone is looking for them specifically. For example, books from our black history section, or sociology, gay studies, women’s spirituality, and even politics. I knew we had good books to show. In the end we took books from all these sections and more, and some magazines.
The broad mix of causes that came out for "Peace & Justice" was really
inspiring--Christians & Muslims, Fair Trade organizations, Veterans for
Peace, Animal Rights groups, the NAACP, and various human rights groups--the whole spectrum. It felt right to be there, and there was a
nice comraderie among the participants. This is something we'll think about doing next year...
