X-Files actress Gillian Anderson and London-based journalist Jennifer Nadel argue that there's a more fulfilling way to live a life. They're co-authors of a new book-length argument for both female individualism and collective action. Titled We: A Manifesto for Women Everywhere, the book is organized around nine principles of thought that promise to eradicate competition and criticism in favor of compassion and collaboration. Creating bona fide change is a big promise, but Nadel and Anderson are better poised than most writers to deliver it: Nadel has long worked as a women's-rights activist, and Anderson is co-author of the bestselling Earthend Saga book series. Here, the Strand hosts an event at the New York Society for Ethical Culture, where the authors will read from the work and discuss its practical applications to modern life. Admission includes a signed copy of the book.
