2013 Annual Members Meeting for Internationalist Bookstore & Community Center

Are you an Ibooks member, volunteer, or patron? Come out to the annual members meetup and enjoy delicious food donated by Vimala’s Curryblossom Cafe. Hear about what’s up with the store such finances, new projects, exciting events that we’ve hosted over the year, and conversation with other like-minded and involved people. You’ll also be able to vote on new members to this year’s board of directors. You can renew your membership at the event or become a sustaining member online here.

Internationalist Bookstore has served as an activist center and a free organizing and event space for youth and other community members in the Chapel Hill area since 1981.

Israel/Middle East Discussion Group

With the growing public hype surrounding Iran and nukes, iBooks will start its first Israel/Middle East group to come together and start talking about the tensions/issues that face the Middle East (specifically on Israel, the Arab states, and Iran).
The framework: weekly (or bi-weekly) from the beginning of April to the middle of June. Starting with a “how to” to dialogue on the specific region in question focusing most on people’s understandings/experiences and for people to listen to them. Then continuing with discussions based on current affairs and historical texts, drawing on multimedia as ways to engage participants. It will be in dialogue form, with a neutral facilitator, focusing on people’s individual reactions/perspectives on the information presented as a way to drive discussion as opposed to us all learning about certain parts of the conflict.

Political Prisoners' Birthdays in January- Letter Writing Night

A letter writing night where we send birthday cards to political
prisoners. It's an easy way to let these people know they aren't
forgotten. These men and women fought for many of the freedoms we take for
granted today.
