Revolution Books is Re-Opening in Harlem, with your help.
Revolution Books needs your support now. DONATE TODAY.
In June, RB leased a great new storefront at 437 Malcolm X Boulevard/Lenox Avenue and 132nd Street in Harlem, after many years in Chelsea. To move and re-open, we launched a $150,000 fundraising campaign, including a successful $30,000 Indiegogo campaign which attracted over 240 donors. This made a huge difference, allowing renovation to go forward.
We are now in the final phase of the fund drive for renovation and re-stocking and promotion of books. We had set a target of $35,000. But we have run into an unexpected problem. To put the new heating/AC unit on the building roof will require steel reinforcement, a crane, city permits to close the street, costly inspections -- all of which adds $9000 to the budget. And to proceed with the rest of the renovation, this $9000 is needed immediately.
Will you give now so that RB can open in October? Donate
Revolution Books is needed more than ever: RB is the place where people come from all over the world to find the books and the deep engagement about why the world is the way it is and the possibility of a radically different way the world could be. Scientific and poetic, wrangling and visionary, Revolution Books is at the center of building a movement for revolution.
Humanity Needs Revolution
The new Revolution Books will be located at 437 Malcolm X Blvd / Lenox Ave, near the corner of 132nd St., three blocks South of the 13th St. stop on the 2-3 line. Watch for the Grand Opening Announcement.
Book of the Week!
This week's Book of the Week is Science and Revolution, an interview with Ardea Skybreak, published by Insight Press.
In the early part of 2015, over a number of days, Revolution newspaper conducted a wide-ranging interview with Ardea Skybreak which now published as Science and Revolution: On the Importance of Science and the Application of Science to Society, the New Synthesis of Communism and the Leadership of Bob Avakian.
A scientist with professional training in ecology and evolutionary biology, and an advocate of the new synthesis of communism brought forward by Bob Avakian, Skybreak is the author of, among other works, The Science of Evolution and the Myth of Creationism: Knowing What's Real and Why It Matters, and Of Primeval Steps and Future Leaps: An Essay on the Emergence of Human Beings, the Source of Women's Oppression, and the Road to Emancipation.
Science and Revolution is a 244-page paperback, published at a deliberately low price of $11.95 value, but is available for only $10 at Revolution Books this week.
You can pick up the book at the new Revolution Books in Harlem, 437 Malcolm X Blvd./Lenox Ave. @ 132nd Street. The bookstore will not open to the public until October (date TBA), but we are there doing renovation most afternoons. Come by! Call ahead, 212-691-3345.
