First Annual Upstate Anarchist Book Fair

May 4 @ 12:00 pm - May 5 @ 6:00 pm


Mark your calendars for the first annual Upstate Anarchist Book Fair on May 4 and 5, 2024 in Binghamton, co-hosted by PM Press and Riot Act Books.

In celebration of International Workers’ Day, the two-day fair will feature book/zine vendors, a warehouse sale, community organizations, two full days of panels, live music from the loading dock, and much more. For locals who fondly remember the old Penguin/Putnam book sale, we will have thousands of titles at an affordable price from mass market James Patterson to rare niche titles from independent publishers like us!

We’re still booking vendors & workshops, etc, so please reach out at

Why an Upstate Anarchist Book Fair in Binghamton, NY?

The practical reason: PM Press bought a 17,000 square ft warehouse in Binghamton in 2021. We also purchased a used bookstore – Autumn Leaves – in Ithaca. Over the last year-and-a-half, we’ve filled the warehouse with racks on racks of literature (both PM Press and other other publishers). We also have a big parking lot, a developing event space, and connections to a local DIY community with the skills to put together a fun, productive, and thoughtful event.
