A Victory in the
Revolution Books New York City has announced that the Indiegogo crowd-funding campaign to raise crucial money needed toward re-opening the store in Harlem in late September concluded successfully by the midnight Friday, August 28 deadline. Over $30,000 came in from 235 donors, even before the midnight deadline.
Based on this initial success, we now have to meet the overall fundraising goal of $150,000 (see the talk by Andy Zee, spokesperson for Revolution Books, above). And Revolution Books is calling for volunteers to be part of "Revolution Books Without Walls"--programs and book tables around NYC--and the renovation work at the new store site.
The renovation work takes place most afternoons. If you can help you are needed (no special skills required), please call the bookstore first: 212-691-3345.
And stay tuned for the bookstore opening in late September, and big news about our gala opening day/evening party on October 3 (hold the date!).
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 it up at the new Revolution Books in Harlem, 437 Malcolm X Blvd./Lenox Ave. @ 132nd Street. The bookstore will not open to the public until mid September, but we are there doing renovation most afternoons. Come by! But call ahead, 212-691-3345.
