The openDemocracy Book Club is a monthly event for supporters and anyone interested in human rights, transparency and freedom of expression.

This month, we are reading 'A Strange and Brilliant Light' by Eli Lee. This speculative literary novel explores the impact of the AI revolution through the eyes of three very different young women. It has been described as ‘a a disquieting take on Big Tech’s plans for the future of work’.

If you would like to support us (and local shops), the book is available to purchase on

Book your free place now for the discussion on November 3 at 5pm UK time/12pm EDT. The event will be chaired by the Europe Editor of ourEconomy, Laura Basu, and the author will join us to answer readers' questions.
