Book reading and signing with award winning writer and director, Shamim Sarif (I Can’t Think Straight, The World Unseen, Despite the Falling Snow).

GWN are delighted to welcome Shamim who will be reading from her new book, The Athena Protocol (which has a lesbian lead!) followed by a Q&A session. See below for reviews of the book.

If you would like Shamim to sign your book, please order from the link below in advance of the event. The book has not been released in the UK yet so this is hot off the press! Please order from Amazon US or the independent store link as Shamim is donating all her proceeds to Headwaters Relief whose focus is anti-trafficking.

“Imagine if Mission: Impossible were run by young, brilliant, ultra-skilled female operatives who undertook rogue operations to save the women and girls of the world from kidnappers and traffickers. Shamim Sarif has written a ferocious, take-no-prisoners thriller that actually thrills, with a deep heart and characters you’ll adore. What a wonderful and exciting new voice in YA. More please!”
Patrick Ness, NY Times Bestselling Author of A MONSTER CALLS and THE REST OF US JUST LIVE HERE

“Finally! The female version of James Bond we’ve been waiting for! Only better — this team of black-ops spies exclusively kick ass and take the names of those who prey on women and girls: warlords and human traffickers. With a diverse cast of heroes and villains, a global scope, and just a hint of romance, it makes taking down the patriarchy fun.”
Natalie C. Anderson, author of CITY OF SAINTS & THIEVES
