September 23, 2019
Monday 7 pm
Rated PG-13, 100 min.
The publication of Atwoods The Handmaids Tale in 1985 and the current, Emmy Award-winning television series have created a cultural phenomenon, as handmaids have become a symbol of womens rights and a protest against misogyny and oppression. Filmed live from the stage of the National Theatre in London, Atwood will be interviewed by broadcaster and author Samira Ahmed in a conversation spanning the length of Atwoods remarkable career, her diverse range of works, and why she has returned to her seminal handmaid story, 34 years later.
With exclusive readings from the new book by special guests, this will be an unmissable and intimate event with Atwood, spotlighting her signature insight, humour and intellect. Womens rights, female empowerment and resistance are at the core of Atwoods story and the events are presented in partnership with Equality Now. THE TESTAMENTS will be published worldwide on September 10, 2019.
Presented in partnership with Park City Library and underwritten by Julie Hopkins, Keller Williams Real Estate, as part of the Art on Screen series.
