Books for changing the world

Haymarket Books LIVE

Beginning in March of 2020, Haymarket has collaborated with our authors and a range of other partners to present Haymarket Books LIVE: a wide-ranging series of free, online, political education events to help sustain our collective political, cultural, and social lives in the midst of health, economic, climate, and political crises.

Haymarket Books LIVE has now produced several hundred events aimed at fostering struggle, solidarity, and debate, on topics including police and prison abolition, anti-racism and Black liberation, the past and present of the labor movement, feminism and reproductive justice, opening and abolishing borders, education justice, radical poetry, and much more. 

While all of our online events are freely available, we ask that those who are able make a solidarity donation in support of our continuing to do this work.

Follow Haymarket on Eventbrite to make sure you never miss an event.

Past events can be browsed as videos on our YouTube channel or as audio on our Apple Podcast feed (or wherever you listen to your podcasts). Please subscribe and engage with our events wherever you find them; this helps more people encounter these important conversations!
