Who Runs the World? - Book Launch

Thursday 15th June 2017
19:30 at Waterstones, Bristol - Galleries

Sixty years after a virus has wiped out almost all the men on the planet, things are pretty much just as you would imagine a world run by women might be: war has ended; greed is not tolerated; the ecological needs of the planet are always put first. In two generations, the female population has grieved, pulled together and moved on, and life really is pretty good - if you're a girl.
It's not so great if you're a boy, but fourteen-year- old River wouldn't know that. Until she met Mason, she thought they were basically extinct.

We are very happy to host Virginia Bergin's book launch!

Virginia will encourage conversation and spark debate around gender, asking where we get our ideas about what it means to be female and male, and what kind of behavioural expectations come with those ideas. Virginia will also be asking her audience to think about what their future looks like - what kind of world would they like to live in? How would they make the world a better place?

This is a free, ticketed event- please book in store or online.
