January 10, Thursday-Author Rabbi Brant Rosen

$21.00 
Thursday January 10, 2013 Author Presentation and Book Signing
Rabbi Brant Rosen, author of
Wrestling in the Daylight:
A Rabbi's Path to Palestinian Solidarity
  
In 2006 Rabbi Brant Rosen, who serves a Jewish Reconstructionist congregation in Evanston, Illinois, launched a blog called Shalom Rav. The focus of his writing-and his activism-changed dramatically in December 2008, when Israel launched a  23-day military attack against Gaza, causing him to deeply question his lifelong liberal Zionism. Rabbi Rosen chose to make his struggle public: to wrestle in the daylight. Wrestling in the Daylight: A Rabbi's Path to Palestinian Solidarity is Rosen's self-curated compilation of these blog posts.

Holiday Open House at RB
Unique Gifts, Books and Art Work 

December 19, Wednesday 6-9 pm Holiday Party

Join us for music, live entertainment featuring the Garvey Train, art work by local artists and refreshments. Buy your holiday gifts and books and get a surprise RB book bag.

The Garvey Train will take off at 8 pm

Revolution Books is an amazing place where people find both the books and deep engagement about why the world is the way it is and how it could be radically different. Revolution Books is in danger of closing down at a time when it is needed more than ever.  This holiday party and other fundraising events are ways you can help save this indispensable bookstore.

There is no other store like this in Chicago.  There is a battle to keep RB on the political terrain. Think about a world without Revolution Books, locked within the boundaries of "what currently exists is the best you can get." A different future depends on you!     Come to the Rev Books Holiday Party.

Art work will benefit both Bob Avakian Everywhere  and Revolution Books.
$5.00 donation-All are welcome
Thanks to all the artists who contributed to this effort.

A  benefit for Revolution Books 

Friday Dec. 14, 7:30 pm   
Saturday Dec 15, 7:30 pm
 Wallace Shawn's
THE FEVER 
performed by David Shapiro
1655 W. Cortland Ave. Chicago,   IL 
Tickets $20
facebook event

Chicago Reader critic Justin Hayford wrote of THE FEVER:   "It's a wickedly difficult monologue in which a man of privileged upbringing stands onstage for an hour and a half, explaining how he's confronted the atrocities perpetrated in 'poor countries' but remaining unable to process the experience. The difficulty of this play lies in its potential to degenerate into an indulgent white-liberal guilt trip. Luckily Shapiro... appreciates the complexity of Shawn's text, the subtlety of its emotional landscape, and perhaps most important its abundance of ironic humor."

American Theatre magazine on "The Fever":
"Recalling the onset of illness in a Third World hotel bathroom, the narrator tells about his privileged childhood, his elitist adulthood, and his gradual realization that he must share responsibility for his society's immorality... You can react to Shawn's play in one of two ways -- you can get angry, or you can reevaluate your life."
When actor David Shapiro introduced "The Fever" to Chicago in 1995, Wallace Shawn said, "I wish I could have done it like David did, but I didn't know how." The Chicago Reader wrote: "...one of the most memorable off-Loop theater experiences of the 1990s." This production was also performed at New York's La MaMa Theatre.
The cause of Revolution Books:
The $20 ticket will help raise the $3,000 needed by the end of the year to save this irreplaceable bookstore. This is the place people can come to from all over to find the books and engagement about why the world is the way it is and how it can be radically different. Revolution Books is a center of the movement for revolution. We must and can save this bookstore.
Volunteers - Revolution Books Needs You Now to make The Fever a success. We need:
* A publicist to help project the play into the media
* Program designer
* Printers for posters and handbills
* Distribution of handbills to theaters, cultural events, schools and libraries
* Reception coordinator: help set up for refreshments and organize donations
* Ushers
* Clean up crew
