Join us to celebrate the anthology One-Block Revolution, edited by Summer Hess and published by Latah Press. One-Block Revolution honors the chorus of diverse changemakers who show up every day to build community in downtown Spokane— specifically the Community Building Campus, a cluster of 6 buildings that public defender and philanthropist Jim Sheehan renovated and repurposed for the public good. This campus serves as an interdisciplinary hub where grassroots leaders run campaigns, build coalitions, host meetings, train activists, and transform their city. Part counterculture manifesto and framework for participatory placemaking, part handbook for nonprofits and social enterprises, this anthology tells one of Spokane’s most essential stories, while providing inspiration and practical guidance for organizations across the world. This panel will feature readings and a discussion with contributors Joe Sheehan, Mariah McKay, and editor Summer Hess.

In order to attend this event, you must purchase a Weekend Pass. One pass ($15 + fees) covers entry into ALL events on Saturday and Sunday at The Montvale Event Center. There will be metered parking or paid downtown lots. Make sure to join our mailing list for future festival announcements.
