The publication of The Handmaid’s Tale in 1985 and the current, Emmy Award-winning television series have created a sweeping global cultural phenomenon, as ‘handmaids’ have become a symbol of women’s rights, standing against misogyny and oppression.
 
In Conversation with Margaret Atwood is a New Zealand premiere literary event spanning the breadth of Atwood’s remarkable career, her diverse range of works and why, in the Booker Award co-winner The Testaments, she has returned to her seminal story, thirty-four years later.
 
Join us for an unmissable evening of conversation, discussion and Q & A with one of the most vital authors of her generation, as Margaret Atwood shares her signature insight, humour and intellect.

In Conversation with Margaret Atwood will be hosted by Chlöe Swarbrick.
