What if, Cinderella was a cyborg?
Cinder is a gifted mechanic, living in new Beijing. She is also a cyborg. Derided by her controlling step mother, Cinder’s life takes an unexpected turn when she meets the charming Prince Kai, and becomes entwined in interplanetary political intrigue.
Exploring disability and discrimination, Cinder presents a challenging take on an established fairytale. Join us for a discussion of the re-imagination of Cinderella though a sci-fi lens on Saturday the 28th of July at 3pm at the Big Comfy Bookshop. All welcome.
