Atwood live streaming

Margaret Atwood is the author of more than fifty books of fiction, poetry and critical essays. Her novels include Cat’s Eye and The Blind Assassin. 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 for his opponents. The 2017 release of the award-winning TV series also boosted the book’s fortunes, with sales now topping 8 million copies worldwide.

The author has won numerous awards including the Booker Prize, the Arthur C Clarke Award for Imagination in Service to Society, the Franz Kafka Prize, the Peace Prize of the German Book Trade and the PEN USA Lifetime Achievement Award. She has also worked as a cartoonist, illustrator, librettist, playwright and puppeteer and now lives in Toronto. See Margaret streamed live at 7.30pm at the Edge Arts Centre on Tuesday 10 September.
