A giant of modern literature and a science fiction icon, Margaret Atwood has anticipated, satirized and even changed the popular preconceptions of our time. Both serious-minded and wickedly funny, she is uniquely adored by readers and critics worldwide. In more than 40 books, from classics like The Handmaidís Tale and The Blind Assassin to her recent novel The Year of the Flood, the Booker Prize-winning author explores critical issues with a poetís voice. After a long absence, Atwood returns to Campbell Hall to share her observations and witty commentary on literature, social activism, technology and art, and the artistís role in society.
