Margaret Atwood at Northwestern

Tonight, Northwestern hosted author Margaret Atwood for this year’s One Book One Northwestern keynote event. She sat down with Helen Thompson  to discuss The Handmaid’s Tale in Pick-Staiger Auditorium, and our team supported the event with an overflow stream to the Block Museum of Art. Addressing a packed auditorium, they talked about humor in bleak times, neologisms, and the influence of dictatorships on language.
