I was curious to check out Mayday Books in Minneapolis on a recent stop at the University of Minnesota. Hadn’t ever been there before.
Pretty cool little shop, if you’re into the lefty, pro-labor, off-the-grid radical type of vibe. There is a lot to look at, from the little stuffed Che Guevara on one shelf to a pretty imposing portrait of labor icon Eugene Debs, in full prison garb. And quite a few books to browse, naturally.
The guy working there–and I regret I didn’t write down his name–was kind enough to let me take a few snaps. So here are a couple of them.
Late Addition: My reliable buddy (and consummate political cartoonist) Kirk Anderson informs me that the store volunteer’s name is Craig. That likely would make him Craig Palmer, who reputedly is the longest-serving volunteer at Mayday.
