Legendary Author Margaret Atwood Has Announced a Sequel to The Handmaid’s Tale
Set 15 years after The Handmaid’s Tale, Margaret Atwood’s sequel, The Testaments, was inspired by all of the questions fans had about Gilead—the fictional regime that has taken over America in the original book. “The other inspiration,” she says, “is the world we’ve been living in.”
With over sixty books, forty translations, and some of the literary world’s most prestigious awards, Atwood’s legacy can’t be overstated. Her keynotes are layered, witty, provocative, compassionate, and always informed by her sharp insight into our cultural moment.
