Our next meeting will be July 30 and we will be returning to one of our favorite topics, anarchist newspapers.
Anarchism and Anarchist Newspapers with Audrey Goodfriend and Barry Pateman
Please join us as we continue our conversation about the past, present, and future of anarchist newspapers within the movement. This month we are lucky enough to be joined by Audrey Goodfriend, who will be talking about her involvement with The Why (1942-1947), and Barry Pateman, who will discuss his involvement in a number of short-lived anarchist papers.We look forward to seeing you at what is sure to be a stimulating and thought provoking evening!
As always, there will be snacks, raffles, and comradely good cheer!

Audrey Goodfriend was born in The Bronx, NY. Her parents were both anarchists and her father was the secretary of the local Ferrer-Rocker branch of the Workingmen’s Circle. Audrey was a member of a youth group for Jewish anarchist children. She first met Emma Goldman in 1934 and visited her in Toronto in 1939. In 1946 Audrey and her partner moved to California and in 1958, with four other families, they opened the Walden School in Berkeley. The school is still functioning today and recently celebrated its 50th anniversary. Audrey was interviewed by Paul Avrich for his book, Anarchist Voices.
