Women of Sci-Fi Book Club

Sunday 23rd September 15:00 at Brussels

Starting now: a new book club right here in our lovely bookshop focusing on wonderful and wondrous women sci-fi writers! Discover (or rediscover) some fantastic, otherworldly books in a genre where women are often overlooked but where their voices are necessary and important. Though the books in the selection will have a certain sociological/political inclination, this is a club for all book-lovers and sci-fi heads, regardless of their gender and/or species (Klingons are also welcome).
The club will meet once a month on Sundays, with snacks, refreshments and a potentially fidgety moderator! Slots are limited to 8 club members so sign up asap at brussels@waterstones.com with Women of Sci-Fi Book Club as a subject line.
As an added bonus, we'll be offering a 10% discount to members on all book club titles ^_^ 

September's book: The Female Man by Joanna Russ
A landmark book in the fields of science fiction and feminism. Four women living in parallel worlds, each with a different gender landscape. When they begin to travel to each other's worlds each woman's preconceptions on gender and what it means to be a woman are challenged. Acclaimed as one of the essential works of science fiction and an influence on William Gibson, THE FEMALE MAN takes a look at gender roles in society and remains a work of great power.
