In conversation with Margaret Atwood

To celebrate the publication of The Testaments, the highly anticipated sequel to The Handmaid’s Tale, author Margaret Atwood talks about her remarkable career and why she has returned to her 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.’
Margaret Atwood

The event includes an interview with the author, audience Q&A, exclusive readings by special guests and all ticket holders will receive a copy of the new book.

The Testaments will be published by VINTAGE on 10 September 2019
