The trailblazing author and social campaigner Margaret Atwood is hosting a rare live in person event broadcast, featuring discussion from her hugely successful THE HANDMAIDS TALE and excerpts from her upcoming sequel called THE TESTAMENTS (one of the most anticipated literary releases of all time). The event will also cover her life, and feature special guests.
Margaret Atwood is the author of more than fifty books of fiction, poetry and critical essays. Her 1985 classic The Handmaid's Tale went back into the bestseller charts with the election of Donald Trump, when the Handmaids became a symbol of resistance against him; and the 2017 release of the award-winning Channel 4 TV series. Sales of the English language edition have now topped 8 million copies worldwide.
With exclusive readings from the new book by special guests, this will be an unmissable and intimate event with Atwood, spotlighting her signature insight, humour and intellect.
