The Field Book Club

Learn everything you’ve ever wanted to learn about revolutionary history, alternative democratic structures, anti-capitalist/radical thought, and develop utopian visions of the world to come!

We teach each other/we teach ourselves. We read something and we put it into practice!

As of 2022 we’re meeting monthly in person at The Field, 385 Queens Road, New Cross SE14 5HD.
