Event description

Description

The Winnipeg International Writers Festival is thrilled to announce that the internationally-acclaimed Canadian writer Margaret Atwood has chosen to launch her novel The Testaments at THIN AIR 2019.

“An Evening with Margaret Atwood” is the final event at this year’s festival. It will feature Ms Atwood reading from the new novel, followed by an on-stage conversation.

The Testaments, published by McClelland & Stewart, an imprint of Penguin RandomHouse Canada, answers questions that have tantalized readers since the 1985 release of The Handmaid's Tale, an international bestseller and the inspiration for the award-winning television series, the full-length ballet, and the newly-released graphic novel. The Testaments picks up the story fifteen years after Offred stepped into the unknown, with the explosive testaments of three female narrators from Gilead.

McNally Robinson Booksellers will be onsite with copies of The Testaments for purchase.

**Please Note** Ms Atwood will not be signing books at the event; this is consistent with all of her Canadian appearances.
