A chance to read a little deeper

Evesham Editorial 7th Aug, 2019   0

BOOK lovers are being invited to a live broadcast at Pershore Number 8 Community Arts Centre with popular Canadian author Margaret Atwood.

To celebrate the launch of The Testaments, her highly anticipated sequel to The Handmaid’s Tale, Fane Productions present an evening with the Canadian novelist, poet, literary critic and inventor at the National Theatre.

The publication of Atwood’s The Handmaid’s Tale in 1985 and the current, award-winning television series have created a cultural phenomenon.

Live from the London stage, Atwood will be interviewed by broadcaster and author Samira Ahmed in a conversation spanning the length of Atwood’s remarkable career, her diverse range of works and why she has returned to her seminal handmaid story, 34 years later.

The evening on Tuesday, September 10 will also feature exclusive readings from the new book by special guests.
