Actress and activist Rose McGowan reads from her memoir Brave which details her childhood living as part of the controversial group Children of God with a live Q&A hosted by June Sarpong MBE to follow.
Named Time Magazine Person of the Year 2017 and GQ Inspiration of the Year 2018 (the first woman to be honoured by the magazine’s annual awards), Rose is intrinsically linked to the #MeToo campaign and founder of the eponymous #RoseArmy. She has emerged as a powerful voice for the voiceless and an activist who simply wants us to become the brave humans we are all born to be.
As an actor, she starred in the longest running, female led show in TV history, Charmed and her directorial debut, Dawn, was nominated for the Grand Jury Prize at the Sundance Film Festival. As an author her think-piece autobiography Brave, takes a very raw look at the sheer enormity of challenges she faced. From growing up in a cult to falling into Hollywood acting and how her career was stymied when she refused to play to other’s rules. Her story of triumph over adversity quickly became a New York Times bestseller.
