NYC – WE: A Manifesto for Women

Gillian Anderson and Jennifer Nadel appear at New York Society for Ethical Culture on Monday, March 13, 2017 at 7:00 PM. Tickets available from Strand Bookstore…

Press Release:

Imagine a sisterhood—across all creeds and cultures. An unspoken agreement that we, as women, will support and encourage one another. That we will remember we don’t know what struggles each of us may be facing elsewhere in our lives and so we will assume that each of us is doing our best…

So begins WE: A Manifesto for Women—an inspiring, empowering, and provocative manifesto for change written by actress Gillian Anderson and journalist Jennifer Nadel. Change that we can all affect, one woman at a time. Change that provides a crucial and timely antidote to the “have-it-all” superwoman culture and instead focuses on what will make each and every one of us happier and more free. Change that provides an answer to the nagging sense of “is that it?” that almost all of us can succumb to when we wake in the dead of night.

Gillian Anderson is an award-winning film, television, and theater actor and producer, writer, and activist. She currently lives in London with her children.

Jennifer Nadel is an award-winning broadcast journalist, qualified attorney, writer, and activist. American-born, she also lives in London with her three sons.

Admission Options:
Buy a $28 ticket which includes a signed copy of WE: A Manifesto for Women Everywhere to attend this event. Please note that payment is required for all online event orders at the time of checkout. The event will take place at The New York Society for Ethical Culture (2 W 64th St. New York, NY 10023)

Gillian Anderson appears at Mysterious Galaxy on Tuesday October 14, 2014 at 7:00 pm to sign A Vision of Fire!

This is a numbered event – numbers for the signing line are free with the purchase of A Vision of Fire from Mysterious Galaxy, available October 7th, starting at 10 AM!

If you are planning to attend the event, please do not place your order through the web site as all such orders are processed after the event. Instead, please contact the store and purchase the book on or after the on-sale date.

The first novel from iconic X-Files star Gillian Anderson and New York Times bestselling author Jeff Rovin: a science fiction thriller of epic proportions.

Renowned child psychologist Caitlin O’Hara is a single mom trying to juggle her job, her son, and a lackluster dating life. Her world is suddenly upturned when Maanik, the daughter of India’s ambassador to the United Nations, starts speaking in tongues and having violent visions. Caitlin is sure that her fits have something to do with the recent assassination attempt on her father—a shooting that has escalated nuclear tensions between India and Pakistan to dangerous levels—but when teenagers around the world start having similar outbursts, Caitlin begins to think that there’s a more sinister force at work.

In Haiti, a student claws at her throat, drowning on dry land. In Iran, a boy suddenly and inexplicably sets himself on fire. Animals, too, are acting irrationally, from rats in New York City to birds in South America to ordinary house pets. With Asia on the cusp of nuclear war, Caitlin must race across the globe to uncover the mystical links among these seemingly unrelated incidents in order to save her patient—and perhaps the world.
