Where: Táala Hooghan Infoshop, Occupied territories Flagstaff, Arizona.

The book fair will be located at Táala Hooghan Infoshop at 1704 N 2nd St Occupied Territories Flagstaff, AZ.
(East Flag just off of Route 66 near 4th st.)

Limited parking at the infoshop is available, you can park around the neighborhood as well.
We will be providing free food. Snacks throughout the day and dinner on Saturday and snacks and lunch on Sunday.
We will also be providing free childcare at the infoshop.
We maintain accessibility as a priority though we do not have the most adequate facilities (bathrooms aren’t too big but a large wheel chair can fit through most all of our space). Please let us know if you need additional accessibility while at the book fair.
Space safety & security:
We intend on doing our best to ensure that the space we hold is a threat to all forms of oppression and oppressive behaviors (read: hetero-patriarchy/homophobia/sexism/settler-colonialism/white supremacy/racism/age-ism/ableism). There will be infoshop collective members and AFTM book fair organizers available if there are any issues, but we welcome you to assist us to make sure to have each other’s backs. We do not welcome drugs/alcohol in our space and ask intoxicated folks come back when they’re sober.

Out of all the wonderful things my company wouldn’t allow me to promote on our community board (despite their heavy claims of anti-censorship), the events and flyers of the Táala Hooghan Infoshop were the ones I had wanted to put up the most. I was not allowed to donate books to their book swaps and such, either. I never got a clear answer on why. But hey, Flagstaff, you should give this and their other ongoing events a looksee. They’ve actually got quite a lot of amazing things going on in their info- and workshops.
The Percival Lowell Observatory has started an indiegogo page to get some much-needed crowdsourcing together to restore the 117-year-old Clark Telescope, the telescope responsible for much of the mapping of the Moon done for the Apollo missions back in the 1960’s (this is not the Pluto Discovery Telescope, but its sister on the same hill).
It’s no longer a research tool but an educational one for the community, and it needs a TON of work. Support bearing repairs, deck stripping, electrical work and even some work just to get the shutter to open and close properly.
Please consider clicking through and checking out what they have to say and what they’re looking to collect. And if you have even just a spare dollar, please consider donating. If you can’t, swing this link a reblog, please! :)
Every Friday night of November (Except the 23rd!) Bookmans Flagstaff will be hosting a weekly write-in/meetup starting at 6pm!
They’ll have drawings for free drinks, too!
Come join us as we bounce ideas back and forth, compare word-counts, and hunt the shelves for reference material! I’ll be there every week for sure.
GET ON IT!
Also please reblog this like wildfire, I know you Arizona writers are hiding out in these mountains SOMEWHERE.

The judge told the victim, “If you wouldn’t have been there that night, none of this would have happened to you.” Because apparently, if women go to concerts, they should expect to be sexually assaulted.

Well, I have lived here for roughly 6 years now but it is time to take my leave.
This blog was started on a lark, was an honest effort and a labor of love.
I hope you have all enjoyed it for the short tenure it existed.
That being said, if somebody would like to take it over, please contact me firstname.lastname@example.org. Otherwise, it will go into a stasis of Tumblr archived history.
It was a pleasure to see it gain followers, write and photograph for it, but other pastures are now awaiting me at this time in my life.
I love you all.

If you haven’t heard of Roller Derby you really are out of the loop. It’s like Hockey, my favorite sport, only hotter.
I adopted a derby girl out of Flagstaff. She is no ordinary girl. She’s tough, brave and bold. I think everyone should get involved and adopt a derby girl.

Swamp Wolf - Demo 2011
A couple of months back I played a show in the winter up in Flagstaff, Arizona at the Big House with this band Swamp Wolf. They were fun, lots of moshing, screaming, loud. Being who I am I let the people do there thing. Beer flew everywhere and that was that. A few months after that I was at Ghost of Eastside in Tempe and saw that Swamp Wolf had a tape out and there were some for sale. I think it was about four dollars.
I got the tape, it is green and swampy, and has a simple little insert. It’s divided into movements and gives a nod to symphonic elements found in black metal but at it’s core is really hardcore music. My favorite thing about this tape is the guitar and drums. At times it’s chuggy and droney. Either way it’s something that is going on in Flagstaff, Arizona. I often get bummed at how under exposed a lot of Flagstaff bands are. So here is to Swamp Wolf for getting there tape out there.
Get their stuff for free on bandcamp.
