Haymarket Books presents Haymarket House, our new home and community space. We are taking an abundance of caution due to the Covid-19 crisis and will be opening only when it is safe to do so.
Culture. Politics. Community.
Haymarket Books presents Haymarket House, our new home and community space located at 800 W. Buena in the heart of Chicago’s Uptown neighborhood.
Opening in mid-2020, Haymarket House will be the home of the Haymarket Books publishing offices and a community hub for readings, workshops, film screenings, study groups, and other events. Here we will build the kind of solidarity needed to build a new future.
We believe that cultural transformation requires the literary imagination and the political imagination.
We believe that success in the struggle for social and economic justice relies on the integration of culture, politics, and community.
We believe that great ideas deserve a great home.
In this time of political upheaval, when we are more and more isolated, and the world is in crisis, Haymarket House will offer a gathering place for artists, writers, activists, scholars, and everyday folks who want to change this city and the world.
Haymarket House is the physical embodiment of Haymarket Books’ deep roots and critical role in Chicago’s culture of resistance. As a long-standing heart of the city’s social justice struggles, Uptown is a perfect setting for Haymarket to build on Chicago’s dynamic history of working for Indigenous, Black, gender, immigrant, LGBTQ+, and working-class liberation.
We are taking an abundance of caution due to the Covid-19 crisis and will be opening only when it is safe to do so.
