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.

GUILLERMO DEL TORO and CHUCK HOGAN discuss The Fall: Book Two of the Strain Trilogy on Sept 23rd.
Harvard Book Store is excited to welcome acclaimed director GUILLERMO DEL TORO and award-winning thriller writer CHUCK HOGAN as they discuss The Fall, the second installment in their Strain Trilogy. The pair will be interviewed by the Brattle Theatreâ€²s own creative director, Ned Hinkle.
The vampiric virus unleashed in The Strain has taken over New York City. It is spreading across the country and soon, the world. Amid the chaos, Eph Goodweather, head of the CDCâ€²s team and one of a small group who have banded together to fight the bloodthirsty monsters that roam the streets, finally manages to identify the parasite that causes the infection. But it may be too late.
Ignited by the Masterâ€²s horrific plan, a war erupts between Old and New World Vampires, each side vying for control of the planet. As the virus continues to plague the land, humans find themselves caught in the middle of the conflict.
At the same time, the battle finds its way inside Ephâ€²s own home: his ex-wife, Kelly, who was turned by the Master, has her sights fixed on Zack, Ephâ€²s son.
With the future of the world in the balance, Eph and his team of fighters must use all their skills and Holocaust survivor and former professor Abraham Setrakianâ€²s intimate knowledge of the enemy to combat a terror whose ultimate plan is more terrible than the humans at first imagined—a fate worse than annihilation.

Guillermo del Toro signs his new novel The Fall at the Forbidden Planet Megastore, 179 Shaftesbury Avenue, London, WC2H 8JR, on Wednesday 6th October 6 – 7pm.
In this fantastic sequel to The Strain, humans have been displaced at the top of the food chain, and now understand what it is to be not the consumer, but the consumed. Ephraim Goodweather, director of the New York office of the Centers for Disease control, is one of the few humans who understands what is really happening. Vampires have arrived in New York City, and their condition is contagious. If they cannot be contained, the entire world is at risk of infection. As the Biblical origins of the Ancient ones are gradually revealed, Eph learns that there is a greater, more terrible plan in store for the human race – worse even than annihilationâ€¦
Guillermo del Toro came to prominence with cult horror movies such as Chronos and The Devil’s Backbone and made his Hollywood directorial debut with the classic Blade II. Rapidly followed by the box office and critical hit Hellboy and the Oscar-winning Pan’s Labyrinth, del Toro has established himself as one of the leading directors in the genre.
Forbidden Planet is the largest store of its kind in the world. Some of the biggest names in Sci-Fi, Fantasy, Comics and Cult Entertainment have come to our London Megastore for signing events, including: Neil Gaiman, Terry Pratchett, Terry Gilliam, Simon Pegg, William Gibson, Mark Millar, Brian Froud and Stephen King.
