Partisan Book Club – Woman on the Edge of Time

November 16 @ 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm

Partisan book club is back in a physical space! To celebrate our return to the corporeal world, we’ll be making this one a pot luck – so please do bring a dish or snacks if you can! You’re also welcome to bring along your own booze and soft drinks.
———–
Join us at Partisan’s new home in Salford to share your thoughts about Woman on the Edge of Time by Marge Piercy – dystopian feminist sci-fi for fans of Margaret Atwood, Naomi Alderman and Sophie Mackintosh.
“After being unjustly committed to a mental institution, Connie Ramos is contacted by an envoy from the year 2137, who shows her a utopian future of sexual and racial equality and environmental harmony. But Connie also bears witness to another potential outcome: a dystopian society of grotesque exploitation. One will become our world. And Connie herself may strike the decisive blow…” – goodreads.com
