From the October Anarchist Forum announcement (links added):
On Tuesday, October 9, at 7:30pm, the Libertarian Book Club's Anarchist Forum will present a panel of radical activists and authors who wrote essays for the new book Resistance: A Radical Social And Political History Of The Lower East Side. The panel will explore the connections of the Lower East Side of Manhattan to the radical movements of the last 150 years. The panel and their special interests are Village Voice reporter, Sarah Ferguson-housing and community; multitalented Richard Kostelanetz-art and writing; editor Clayton Patterson-politics and experimental art; Living Theatre producer and performer, Hanon Reznikov -theatre; and WBAI host, Bill Weinberg-radical media. Emma Goldman and Dorothy Day will no doubt be mentioned. As is always the case at the Anarchist Fora, the speakers will also listen to the audience and respond to their comments and questions
