Novel about Anarchism in NYC's Lower East Side

NYC Anarchist Book Fair 2011
9 April 2011
Judson Memorial Church

Dan Chodorkoff will read from his new novel, Loisaida (Fomite Press,) which explores anarchism on New York's Lower East Side through the eyes of a young squatter, Catherine, who is part of a collective that publishes an alternative newspaper, Together with a diverse group of activists she organizes to save a community garden, and she explores her family history through a dialog with her great-grandmother, who was part of the Yiddish anarchist movement on the Lower East Side early in the 20th century. Two-time National Book Award finalist Howard Norman has called Loisaida "an inimitable debut novel" and "a powerful reading experience".

Bio: Dan Chodorkoff is a writer and cultural anthropologist who, with Murray Bookchin, co-founded the Institute for Social Ecology in 1974. He is a former College Professor and a lifelong activist and organizer who spent twelve years working on the Lower East Side. Loisaida is his first novel.
