Announcing the ‘Marius Mason Wing’ of the Lucy Parsons Library at The Base in Brooklyn!

We are pleased to announce the opening of the “Marius Mason Wing” at the Lucy Parsons Library, a radical lending library located at The Base, an anarchist social center in Brooklyn, NY.

Marius read these books in prison and wanted to share them with other activists. Thanks to the fine folks at The Base, these books are available to everyone for free—all you need is a Lucy Parsons Library card! We encourage everyone to check out these books and to write Marius afterward with your thoughts!
