Writers Bloc and the Skirball present Dame Margaret Atwood
Buy a copy by 5PM on September 15 to get the information to access the event!
Margaret Atwood's novel, The Handmaid's Tale, shook us in 1985. It imagined a totalitarian state called The Republic of Gilead, which has overthrown the United States. The Constitution has been tossed out the window, and the military has taken over. Gilead's women are subjugated, the law is the Bible strictly interpreted, and resistance is squashed. Thirty five years ago, it was a cautionary tale about repressive societies. Today many readers consider it prophetic. The Testaments is the next chapter.
To attend this very special event with Margaret Atwood, the purchase of a paperback copy of The Testaments is required. No other fee is charged—only the purchase of the book (and shipping, if chosen). Once you purchase the book from Chevalier's Books, you will receive an email from Writers Bloc Presents closer to the event date with a unique link to access the September 15 livestream. Please email any questions about the event to firstname.lastname@example.org.
The first 500 customers to respond will receive SIGNED copies of The Testaments. (If you're not within the first 500 customers, you can still buy a copy of the book and attend the event. However, you will NOT receive a signed edition.)
Moderator to be announced.
