October: An Evening with China Miéville
Mon 8 May 2017, 19:00 – 20:00 BST
Heffers bookshop is delighted to present: October - An Evening with China Miéville.
Award-winning writer China Miéville has long been inspired by the ideals of the Russian Revolution and here, on the centenary of the revolution, he provides his own distinctive take on its history. In conversation, Miéville reveals the Russian Revolution as a breathtaking story in its passion and drama and strangeness for newcomers and old radicals alike.
Miéville’s new book October: The Story of the Russian Revolution plunges us into the year that turned the world upside down: a political event of profound and ongoing consequence.
In February 1917, in the midst of bloody war, Russia was still an autocratic monarchy: nine months later, it became the first socialist state in world history. How did this unimaginable transformation take place? How was a ravaged and backward country, swept up in a desperately unpopular war, rocked by not one but two revolutions?
