"The literary event of the year"

Session Times



This September, the wait is over… 'The Testaments', Margaret Atwood’s highly anticipated sequel to 'The Handmaid’s Tale', is finally revealed. This momentous literary event will be celebrated with an exclusive cinema broadcast filmed live from the London stage. Atwood will be interviewed by broadcaster and author Samira Ahmed in a revealing conversation spanning the length of her remarkable career, her diverse range of works, and why she has returned to her legendary handmaid story, some 34 years later. With exclusive readings from the new book by special guests – including Ann Dowd, Lily James and Sally Hawkins – this will be an unmissable and intimate event with Atwood, spotlighting her signature insight, humour and intellect.

Why You Should See This Film

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. Whether convening your book club or just wanting to fill the post-Season 3 void, join us underground for a fascinating night of literary insight.
