This March, NCW and UEA are thrilled to welcome internationally bestselling author of The Power, Naomi Alderman.
Naomi will be in conversation with UEA Lecturer and fiction writer Julianne Pachico about her latest novel, The Future – a white-knuckle tour-de-force that sees lone individuals taking on tech giants, highlighting how power corrupts the few who have it and what it means to stand up to them. With dazzling intensity, The Future explores the world we have made and where we are going: the future is here.
The event will include an audience Q&A and will be followed by a book signing in the foyer. Books will be available to buy on the evening, provided by Waterstones.
Please note: This event takes place at Lecture Theatre 1, Lecture Theatre Building, University of East Anglia, Norwich Research Park, Norwich, Norfolk, NR4 7TJ. Find out how to get there →
