Sunday, 18th August
Started in mid 1973, Spartacus Books is finally over the hill – but still not under the ground! Come celebrate with us. We welcome all collective members past and present, community regulars, people who've organized here, and everyone who has found that special politically inspiring book on our shelves.
This past year has been one of joy and challenge here at Spartacus, and through it all (as has always been the case) we've had tremendous support from our broad community. On this day we will celebrate our birthday, our perseverance, and our continued dedication to radical politics, struggles for justice, and a space that welcomes and inspires folks of all sorts.
Unlike big box stores, for 40 years Spartacus Books has been Vancouver's go-to store for anti-capitalist shopping. Through financial challenge, a fire in 2004, and this year's threat of eviction, Spartacus has remained. We are collectively volunteer run, non-hierarchical, and non-sectarian – and we make it work thanks to hundreds of volunteers and comrades.
So come one and all, share stories and experiences, share cake, and lets give Spartacus Books the birthday hug that it deserves.
Cake will be as accessible as possible (gluten free, sugar free and vegan options).
Everything will be 10% off and 20% for Spartacus supporter members.
Fun will be had – it'll be a riot!
Spartacus Books is on the ground/street level. Both the outer door and the bathroom door are 800mm (31.49 inches) in width. In the gender neutral bathroom, there is one bar directly to the left of the toilet and one bar directly behind it. The inside of Spartacus is all one level except for a slight bump (about 1mm in height) close to the back.
