The workshops opened up with a lively "introduction to anarchism" talk, facilitated by the Anarchist Federation. Then Graham Burnett, author of "Permaculture: A Beginner's Guide", talked about permaculture as a sustainable way of living.
It was a full house with standing room only as over 75 people crammed into the Mill's exhibition space to hear Robert King Wilkerson, a black prison activist from Louisiana, talk about his experiences. Finally Loukas Christodoulou closed with a talk about his experiences in Palestine as part of the International Solidarity Movement.
"The Bookfair was a great success", said David Kay, one of the bookfair organisers. "Feedback from everyone who had a stall was really positive and we are already planning the next bookfair which will take place in December. We are aiming to build on this success and make the next bookfair even bigger and better!"
