Join us for an evening filled with puppetry, dance, music, stand up, skits, a local pie auction, and more! All proceeds of this volunteer-run benefit will go directly to Internationalist Books.
The Cabaret has become a favorite yearly tradition, and is one of our most important annual fundraisers. Members of the volunteer collective, folks who do projects at the store, and friends from far and wide contribute acts to a variety show style event. We also auction donated pies throughout the evening.
The Cabaret is also when we announce and celebrate the Bob Sheldon Award, given each year in memory of the founder of Internationalist Books & Community Center.
We’re still looking for volunteers to perform acts, make pies, and assist with the event. Email us at ibooks(at)internationalistbooks.org if you’re interested!
Support the Unist’ot’en indigenous pipeline blockade!
Teach-In and Fundraiser, Thursday January 29th at 7:00pm.
The Unist’ot’en, a clan of the Wet’suwet’en Nation have built permanent camps that stand directly in the path of oil and gas pipelines currently proposed to run through Unist’ot’en territory in so called BC Canada. As long as they stand, no pipelines can be built. There will be a video presentation by a member of Marcellus Shale Earth First! followed by a discussion about the eco-cidal expansion of tar sands and shale gas projects on turtle island.
