Book Signing: Bill Ayers

  • Deep Vellum Books 3000 Commerce Street Dallas, TX, 75226 United States (map)

DSA Fort Worth and DSA North Texas invite you to a special book signing appearance with Bill Ayers in Dallas at Deep Vellum Books. His latest — Demand the Impossible! A Radical Manifesto — will be available for purchase and signing. Please join us for an afternoon of radical discussion and fellowship. 


William Ayers, formerly Distinguished Professor of Education and Senior University Scholar at the University of Illinois at Chicago (UIC) has written extensively about social justice and democracy, education and the cultural contexts of schooling, and teaching as an essentially intellectual, ethical, and political enterprise. His books include A Kind and Just Parent; Teaching toward Freedom; Fugitive Days: A Memoir; Public Enemy: Confessions of an American Dissident; On the Side of the Child; To Teach: The Journey, in Comics; and Demand the Impossible!


"In an era defined by mass incarceration, endless war, economic crisis, catastrophic environmental destruction, and a political system offering more of the same, radical social transformation has never been more urgent—or seemed more remote.

A manifesto for movement-makers in extraordinary times, Demand the Impossible! urges us to imagine a world beyond what this rotten system would have us believe is possible.

In critiquing the world around us, insurgent educator and activist Bill Ayers uncovers cracks in that system, raising the horizons for radical change, and envisioning strategies for building the movement we need to make a world worth living in."
