We have 20 copies of the Terror Incognita text now available at the Wingnut for people who are planning on participating in the Terror Incognita reading and discussion group. Please come by sometime to pick up your copy if you want to read it before the class starts. If you are able to share one copy between friends or roommates that would be helpful too.

We are doing out best to get a .pdf of the text available online this week as well.

The Terror Incognita Reading and Disussion Group starts on Wednesday July 18th at 8pm. The other class dates are Wed. July 25th at 8pm,  Wed. August 1st at 8pm, and Wed. August 15th at 8pm. (We are skipping that 2nd Wednesday in August so as to not conflict with the monthly IWW meeting, so it’s a great time to join the Richmond Industrial Workers of the World! http://www.richmondiww.org)

The topics in this reading include: current anarchist theory, queer theory, terrorism, consent, gender, identity, and more!

Anyone who wants to take the free Spanish class at the Wingnut needs to fill out this questionnaire so we can turn it into the teacher, so he can figure out the best way to teach the class to meet the students’ needs and desires.  Please fill this out and return it to wingnut_collective@yahoo.com or bring by the Wingnut Anarchist Collective ASAP. The sooner we get these collected the sooner we will be able to start the class!

Also- the two textbooks we will be using are the 1st Edition Vistas Student Textbook  ISBN numbers 1-931100-004 and  Vistas Student Activities Manual ISBN 1-931100-03-9  0 These are both available on amazon to be purchased, and you can get copies really cheap (less than a dollar and then 4 dollars shipping) so if you want your own textbook, please feel free to get one. Otherwise, we will have copies and sharing!

Just a teaser to get the word out that we are planning another Free School class for the end of November. This class will take a look at anarchist theory written by anarchist women at the beginning of the 20th century. We will be selecting zines with essays from Emma Goldman, Lucy Parsons, Voltairine de Cleyre and possibly others.

We have not yet set a day and time for this class. If you are interested in the subject matter, or have suggestions for essays to read or other anarchist women to find essays from, please get in touch. If we hear from people about what time works for them generally, we will do our best to suit schedules.

Richmond does not have a full fledged Free School, although this is something that folks at the Wingnut and others have been talking about for a while. After the success of our first class, Colonization and Decolonization, this Fall, we thought about wanting to find a way to approach anarchist theory that would be introductory and accessible.

We will be learning together, and folks interested in studying this topic will be deciding, together, how to make the meetings function. The class is free and open to all ages.

The texts will be available online for download, and if folks need help getting a copy we can make more copies at the Wingnut.

Please get in touch if you plan to attend or have questions or concerns.  wingnut_collective@yahoo.com or 804 303 5449

The Wingnut is a sober, all ages space.
