Little Read Books is a revolutionary socialist political education collective on the occupied indigenous land commonly known as Denver.

We work in our community to facilitate the study of revolutionary political theory through readings and screenings. We strive to provide a space for revolutionary left politics of all stripes and work with organizations that are fighting to transform our world. We have no owners, bosses, or profit motive, and are committed to building a just world where all may live free of oppression and exploitation.
