MARGARET ATWOOD (Q&A with co-directors Peter Raymont)

Margaret Atwood chronicles two of the busiest years in the life of one of the world’s most celebrated authors.  She is a writer who has never been more relevant. Readers are turning to her work as they face the rise of authoritarian politics, rapidly evolving technologies, and the disaster of climate change. Her poetry and novels are about survival, but they are also survival tools themselves.

The recent success of the television adaptation of her novel, The Handmaid’s Tale, has made Atwood a household name. Two million fans wake up to Atwood’s early morning Tweets.

But few know the private Margaret Atwood. Who is the writer behind these stories? How does she always seem to know what is to come?

Join us for a Q&A after the screenings with co-directors Peter Raymont and Nancy Lang

When:  Thursday Dec. 12th, 2019
Where: City Hall 2F Auditorium, Stratford
Cost: $15/Non members, $13/Members
