New Humanist autumn launch party 2016

Autumn 2016 Issue Launch Party
Tuesday 30 August, 7pm
Waterstones Piccadilly

Join our contributors Owen Hatherley and Dawn Foster in conversation to mark the launch of the Autumn 2016 New Humanist.

The Chernobyl accident of 1986 is one of the greatest catastrophes of the nuclear age, yet its aftermath was followed by a wave of local solidarity and international co-operation. Does it take a disaster to get people to help one another? Should such an event make us think again about the potential of new technology?

Owen Hatherley writes on architecture, politics and popular culture, and is the author of books including The Ministry of Nostalgia (Verso, 2016) and Landscapes of Communism (Allen Lane, 2015).

Dawn Foster writes on social affairs, politics and economics. Her debut book, Lean Out, was published by Repeater earlier this year.

Tickets are £5, redeemable against one of the authors' books, and include a free glass of wine plus a copy of the latest New Humanist. To purchase your ticket please email or telephone 020 7851 2400.
