Margaret Atwood: Live in Cinemas

About Margaret Atwood: Live in Cinemas

This momentous literary event will be celebrated with a cinema broadcast at Eastwood Park Theatre, as Fane Productions present an evening with the Canadian novelist, poet literary critic and inventor.

The publication of Atwood's The Handmaid's Talein 1985 and the current, Emmy Award-winning television series have created a symbol of women's rights and a protest against misogyny and oppression. Live from the London stage, Atwood will be interviewed by broadcaster and author Samira Ahmed in a conversation spanning Atwood's remarkable career, her diverse range of works and why she has returned to her seminal handmaid story, 34 years later.

'Dear Readers: Everything you've ever asked me about Gilead and its inner workings is the inspiration for this book. Well, almost everything! The other inspiration is the world we've been living in'.

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.

The Testaments will be published worldwide on 10 September.

While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for Margaret Atwood: Live in Cinemas are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment.
