Old Capitol Books announces launch of independent press!

We are very pleased to announce Boukra Press, a project of Old Capitol Books.

Poetry Festival Flyer FrontBoukra Press is a collective of writers, intellectuals, artists, and translators who are committed to bringing high-quality poetry and essays to the Monterey community and beyond.

We have an excellent list of publications lined up for 2022, starting with Zoe Baker’s essay “Ends and Means: an Anarchist Critique of Seizing State Power”. This is a succinct analysis which argues that we should not attempt to create a revolution using methods which go against the aims and goals that we have for ourselves as human beings.
