SAO has secured a limited number of tickets to this special Literary Arts presentation, an evening with Margaret Atwood, acclaimed novelist, poet, literary critic, and activist. Join us as we celebrate the publication of The Testaments, Atwood’s hugely anticipated sequel to The Handmaid’s Tale, coming September 10, 2019. Atwood will be in conversation with award-winning journalist and Oregon author Omar El Akkad.

The appearance of Atwood’s acclaimed dystopian novel The Handmaid’s Tale in 1985, and the current Emmy-award winning television series based on the novel, have created a cultural phenomenon. Interviewed live on stage by Omar El Akkad, the conversation will span the length of Atwood’s remarkable career, her diverse range of works, and why she has returned to her seminal story, 34 years later.
