Fane Productions/Rialto Distribution
Te Manawa is proud to present for one afternoon only a free screening of Live in Cinemas - Margaret Atwood

On the 10 September 2019 on the London stage Fane Productions presented an evening with the Canadian novelist, poet, literary critic and inventor. Interviewed by broadcaster and author Samira Ahmed in a conversation spanning the length of Atwood’s remarkable career, her diverse range of works, and why she has returned to her seminal handmaid story, 34 years later. With exclusive readings from Atwood's new Booker Prize winning book The Testaments by special guests including Aunt Lydia herself, this is an unmissable and intimate event with Atwood, spotlighting her signature insight, humour and intellect. 

"Dear Readers: Everything you've ever asked me about Gilead and its inner workings is the inspiration for this book. Well, almost everything! The other inspiration is the world we've been living in." 

Run time 1hr, 55 mins.

The Testaments was published by Vintage on 10 September and is available for request at Auckland Libraries
