Join Anglo-Italian author Alan Rhode in conversation with Roger Casale,
founder of New Europeans and former Labour MP for Wimbledon.
Roger and Alan will talk about Alan’s debut novel The Eagle and the Cockerel and other current topics.
17 October 2023, 5 PM at the Brussels Press Club.
About the Book:
The Eagle and the Cockerel is a fast-paced political thriller on a popular vote to unite France and Germany in a new super-power “Charlemagny” outside the European Union.
Great Britain has long-since left the Union, but tensions between European countries remain and the international balance of power is firmly weighted towards China and the US.
Seizing the opportunity for an unexpected comeback, disgraced former Paris mayor Vincent d’Amont makes an outrageous proposal: France and Germany should unite to create a new superpower: Charlemagny.
The question will be put to the people in an historic vote on ROME, the ubiquitous social network of Europe. But, outraged by the progress of events and fearing a new order based on chaos and conflict, political vlogger Miss Cliché engages in a fierce battle against Vincent and his cronies.
Can Miss Cliché discover who is running the all-powerful ROME and reveal the real forces behind Charlemagny? And can she keep her own feelings under control before Charlemagny becomes a reality?
The event will begin at 5 pm and will end at 6:15pm but will be followed by light drinks.
There will be copies of ‘The Eagle and the Cockerel’ available for sale.
