Join us for a celebration of International Women’s Day with diverse voices from the West and further afield. Our special guest is the world-renowned Margaret Atwood.

Margaret Atwood’s The Handmaid’s Tale has become a symbol of women’s struggle against oppression. On this important day, Atwood reminds us that the ‘inner workings of Gilead and this very strange world we’re living in’ are the inspiration for her extraordinary new book, The Testaments. Hosted by writer Susan McKay, this unique conversation will span the length of Atwood’s remarkable career, and reveal why, after 34 years, she has returned to The Handmaid’s Tale.
