We are thrilled to announce that the internationally-acclaimed Canadian writer Margaret Atwood has chosen THIN AIR 2019 as one of places she will launch The Testaments, her much-anticipated sequel to The Handmaid’s Tale.
“An Evening with Margaret Atwood” will be the final event at this year’s festival. It will feature Ms Atwood reading from The Testaments, followed by an on-stage conversation, at the Royal Manitoba Theatre Centre on Monday, September 30, 7:30 pm.
(Note: Ms Atwood will not be signing books at the event; this is consistent with all of her Canadian appearances.)
UPDATE: This event has now sold out. You can also see Margaret in Cineplex theatres across Canada on September 10th where the launch event of The Testaments will be broadcast live from the UK. For more information please visit: www.margaretatwoodlive.
We extend our sincere condolences to Ms Atwood on the loss of her longtime partner Graeme Gibson, a writer and champion of the literary arts in Canada. We have been informed that her tour to celebrate The Testaments will continue as planned, so we look forward to welcoming her in Winnipeg on September 30.
