For the next two weeks, Haymarket Books is offering free downloads of ten ebooks. The titles offered are nonfiction works focused on social and economic justice.
In a statement, Haymarket shared that the ebooks will be available for free for the next two weeks in an effort to support those whose lives have been disrupted by the COVID-19 outbreak. “Our gratitude and solidarity extends especially to those workers and communities on the front lines of this crisis, and we encourage those who are able to stay at home and follow CDC guidelines. Many of us will be turning to books in search of much-needed relief from constant worry as well as the tools to fight for collective liberation.”
A project of the Center for Economic Research and Social Change, Haymarket Books is a radical, independent, nonprofit publisher based in Chicago. Focused on social and economic justice, Haymarket’s over 500 titles include groundbreaking authors like Angela Davis, Howard Zinn, Rebecca Solnit, and Arundhati Roy.
