2020/2021 Inprint Margarett Root Brown Reading Series: Margaret Atwood
Brazos Bookstore & Inprint present A Virtual Evening with Margaret Atwood in conversation with Natalie Diaz.
Margaret Atwood, whose work has been published in over 45 countries, is the author of more than 50 books of fiction, poetry, essays, and graphic novels. In addition to The Handmaid’s Tale, now an award-winning TV series, her novels include Alias Grace, which won the Giller Prize in Canada and the Premio Mondello in Italy; The Blind Assassin, winner of the 2000 Booker Prize; the MaddAddam trilogy; and The Testaments, which won the 2019 Booker Prize. Atwood will be reading from and talking about Dearly, her first poetry collection in more than a decade.
According to the Poetry Foundation, Atwood “first came to public attention as a poet in the 1960s with her collections Double Persephone and The Circle Game, winner of a Governor General’s award.” “There is a pleasing consistency in these poems,” Jay Parini wrote of her 2007 collection The Door, “which are always written in a fluent free verse, in robust, clear language. Atwood’s wit and humor are pervasive, and few of the poems end without an ironic twang.”
