Take Note: A Conversation with Author Margaret Atwood

The Canadian author Margaret Atwood is considered to be one of the most important and influential writers alive today. She has more than 50 books to her credit, including poetry, short stories, children’s fiction, and 14 novels. The best known works are The Handmaid’s Tale and The Blind Assassin. We'll talk with her about her life as a writer, the difference between speculative fiction and science fiction, and about the manuscript she wrote for the Future Library Project; readers won't see the book for 100 years!
