The Testaments, Margaret Atwood’s highly anticipated sequel to The Handmaid’s Tale, will be revealed in a global cinematic event. The momentous literary event will be celebrated with an exclusive cinema broadcast. The intimate evening will be a celebration of Atwood’s work. The Testaments has been shortlisted for the Booker Prize.
The publication of Atwood’s The Handmaid’s Tale in 1985 and the current, Emmy Award-winning television series have created a cultural phenomenon, as handmaids have become a symbol of women’s rights and a protest against misogyny and oppression.
Filmed from the National Theatre in London, Atwood will be interviewed by BBC journalist and New York Times best-selling 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.
"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." - Margaret Atwood, Canadian novelist, poet, literary critic and inventor
With exclusive readings from the new book by special guests Ann Dowd ('Aunt Lydia' in The Handmaid's Tale TV series), Lily James (Yesterday) and Sally Hawkins (The Shape of Water). This will be an unmissable and intimate event with Atwood, spotlighting her signature insight, humour and intellect.
The Testaments will be published by Penguin Random House and will be released on September 10, 2019.
