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)

NYC – Sarah’s Scribbles Signing

000000000000-adulthood-myth

Cartoonist Sarah Andersen appears at Strand Book Store on Wednesday, July 20, 2016 at 7:00 PM!

Press Release:

Sarah Andersen’s “Sarah’s Scribbles” webcomics have been beloved for their frank, honest depiction of body image, self-consciousness, introversion, relationships, and the frequency of bra-washing. Her first book, Adulthood is a Myth, chronicles the wasting of entire beautiful weekends on the internet, the unbearable agony of holding hands on the street with a gorgeous guy, and dreaming all day of getting home and back into pajamas. In other words, the horrors and awkwardnesses of young modern life. Oh and it’s totally not autobiographical. At all.

Sarah will be at the Strand to talk with her many fans all about the weird and wonderful world of not growing up. Commiserate and get your copy of Adulthood is a Myth signed by the author!
