On Tuesday September 10, the wait will be over... THE TESTAMENTS, Margaret Atwood's highly anticipated sequel to THE HANDMAID'S TALE, will be revealed. The momentous literary event will be celebrated with an exclusive cinema event, captured live and broadcast later that same evening -- as Fane Productions present an evening with the Canadian novelist, poet, literary critic and inventor. 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. Atwood will be interviewed by broadcaster and 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.
