Book Launch – Survival by Rachel Watts

6.30pm    14th Mar 2018    Crow Books 

Ignorance is cheap. And then it costs you everything.
Perth author Rachel Watts’ latest release delivers a devastating vision of a post-climate change world in which governments have collapsed and corporations rule with an iron fist.
The world has suffered economic collapse and multiple environmental crises. In a flooded city, Ava Murasaki is searching for her activist sister Sophia. Meanwhile, Valerie Newlin lives in the secure complex of the Scylla Corporation, the world’s only remaining multinational. There, she finds evidence of something horrifying in the Corporation medical research data. Set in a searingly real near-future, Survival is a story of what people will face for those they love.
Survival is accompanied by four of Watts’ previously published dystopian and post-apocalyptic stories.

Join us to launch this new young adult novel from Perth author, Rachel Watts!
