$100.00 (10% off for members)

As The Testaments, Atwood’s eagerly-anticipated  sequel to The Handmaid’s Tale (1985) appears this September, it’s a good moment to review a few of the highlights and bookends of the first fifty years of her literary career. In this class we’ll look at Handmaid’s Tale, the  first dystopian Gilead book, at her first novel The Edible Woman (1969),  and her most recent collection of short stories, Stone Mattress (2017).

In addition, I’ll be doing a single evening class on The Testaments, which will be available to members of this class and others in the P&P community.

Three Thursdays, October  3,(skip 10th),17, 24, from 2-4 p.m.
