good ol' anarchist fun

Thanks so much to all the kids, parents, families, friends, workshop faciliators and volunteers who helped out with the KidZone at the Anarchist Bookfair last weekend! We had a total blast and couldn't have done it without y'all.

FYI we had over 80 kids come through our door on Saturday and Sunday, over 20 volunteers involved and 8 different workshops. Holy moly.

Stay tuned for more pics!
