"Hidden Lives, Human Possibilities"

Authors Present to Save Revolution Books




WALTER MOSLEY will be speaking at Revolution Books as part of our new author series, "Hidden Lives, Human Possibilities."   


These are intimate evenings of readings and conversation at the bookstore with beloved authors, hosted by Andy Zee, spokesperson for Revolution Books. It's part of the Battle for Revolution Books -- an emergency drive to raise $30,000 by September 30 so that this irreplaceable bookstore can stay in Manhattan. 


You are also invited to a fund raising dinner with Walter Mosley and Andy Zee at Pars Grill House one block from the store, at 5:30 the same evening. See details below.

Revolution Books' lease has expired, we're staying open at 26th Street month-to-month; $30,000 in donations and 50 new monthly sustainers are needed by September 30 to keep this not-for-profit bookstore open in Manhattan. 

At a moment when the people and the planet are in peril, when youth are rising up from Turkey to Brazil to the U.S., as the American system again declares open season on Black youth, people need a place that's at the center of a movement for revolution. Revolution Books is the one bookstore where you can 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. At this bookstore you find the intellectual work, ferment, and dissent that's integral to the emancipation of humanity, and here you can dig into the work of Bob Avakian who has developed a new synthesis of communism-- a viable vision for a new society and world.  We cannot lose this bookstore. 


WALTER MOSLEY is the author of more than 40 books. He became famous in the 90s for his mysteries featuring the detective Easy Rawlins, a Black private investigator living in Los Angeles in the 50s and 60s. His newest novel, Little Green, brings Easy back to life. Mosley's best-selling books at Revolution Books are his novels featuring Socrates Fortlow, a former prisoner who tries to live honestly and honorably with his neighbors on the harsh streets of Los Angeles-- never relying on the cops for anything. Mosley's books have been translated into 20 languages, and he's won an O. Henry Award, a Grammy, and PEN America's Lifetime Achievement Award.
