Northwestern University has chosen The Handmaid’s Tale as its One Book selection for 2018-2019

Every entering freshman to Northwestern University this fall will receive their own copy of The Handmaid’s Tale and will be exposed to a year full of events related to the book. (For context, in the 2017-2018 school year, there were 91 different events on campus related to the One Book selection– this year promises to be as robust, if not more so!)

Atwood will be at Northwestern to give keynote talks on October 30, 2018, a talk each on both the Chicago and the Evanston campuses, where One Book Faculty Chair Helen Thompson also plans to ask Atwood questions about “The Handmaid’s Tale, its recent television adaptation, and its centrality to the current cultural moment.”

For more information on Northwestern’s One Book program, see its webpage here.

Atwood to pen graphic novels for Dark Horse Comics

Margaret Atwood will write three ‘Angel Catbird’ graphic novels for Dark Horse Comics to launch in 2016.

From The Hollywood Reporter:

Catbird — so called because he’s part man, part owl and part cat as the result of “some spilled genetic Super-Splicer,” according to Atwood — will be the star of three graphic novels written by the Canadian novelist and poet and illustrated by Shattered and Firebug‘s Johnnie Christmas, with the series being produced in conjunction with Nature Canada’s Keep Cats Safe and Save Bird Lives initiative.
