One-on-one with Margaret Atwood
Tuesday, September 17, 2019
7:00 p.m.
Free for members of the Ottawa International Writers Festival. Fees may be applied to others.

Join us for a celebration of The Testaments. In this sequel to The Handmaid's Tale, acclaimed author Margaret Atwood answers the questions that have tantalized readers for decades.

When the van door slammed on Offred's future at the end of The Handmaid's Tale, readers had no way of telling what lay ahead.

With The Testaments, the wait is over.

Margaret Atwood's sequel picks up the story fifteen years after Offred stepped into the unknown, with the explosive testaments of three female narrators from Gilead.

Books are available for purchase. Please note that Margaret Atwood will not be signing books.
