In celebration of the paperback publication of The Testaments, Margaret Atwood’s riveting sequel to her dystopian masterpiece The Handmaid’s Tale, FANE presents an exclusive live streamed evening of Atwood in conversation.
The publication of Atwood’s The Handmaid’s Tale in 1985, and the recent Emmy award-winning television series of the same name, created a cultural phenomenon as ‘handmaids’ became a symbol of women’s rights in protests against misogyny and oppression across the world.
Joint winner of the 2019 Booker Prize, The Testaments picks up more than fifteen years after the events of The Handmaid’s Tale and brings the iconic story to a dramatic conclusion. The theocratic regime of the Republic of Gilead maintains its grip on power, but there are signs it is beginning to rot from within. At this crucial moment, two girls with radically different experiences of the regime come face to face with the legendary, ruthless Aunt Lydia. But how far will each go for what she believes?
Don’t miss this intimate event, as Atwood reflects on her remarkable career, spotlighting her signature insight, humour and intellect. She’ll discuss her diverse range of works, and why she has returned to her seminal story, 35 years later.
