New Humanist presents Owen Hatherley and Dawn Foster

Tuesday 30th August 19:00 at London - Piccadilly

The Chernobyl accident of 1986 is one of the greatest catastrophes of the nuclear age, yet its aftermath was followed by a wave of local solidarity and international co-operation. Does it take a disaster to get people to help one another? Should such an event make us think again about the potential of new technology?

Owen Hatherley writes on architecture, politics and popular culture, and is the author of books including The Ministry of Nostalgia (Verso, 2016) and Landscapes of Communism (Allen Lane, 2015).

Dawn Foster writes on social affairs, politics and economics. Her debut book, Lean Out, was published by Repeater earlier this year.

Tickets are £5, redeemable against one of the authors' books, and include a free glass of wine plus a copy of the latest New Humanist. To purchase your ticket please email or telephone 020 7851 2400.
