About the event
Our October Book Club pick is one of the most highly-anticipated novels of the year!
Shortlisted for the Booker prize 2019, The Testaments arrives 34 years after the first book, ‘The Handmaid’s Tale’, which was adapted into a multi-Emmy award-winning drama series. The long-awaited sequel by Margaret Atwood is a thrilling dystopian novel that brings the iconic story to a dramatic conclusion.
Read the book and join us for an engaging discussion at the library!
Limited copies of the novel are available in the library for members to borrow on a first-come, first-served basis.
ABOUT THE BOOK
More than fifteen years after the events of The Handmaid’s Tale, the theocratic regime of the Republic of Gilead maintains its grip on power, but there are signs it is beginning to rot from within. At this crucial moment, the lives of three radically different women converge, with potentially explosive results. Margaret Atwood reveals the innermost workings of Gilead as each woman is forced to come to terms with who she is, and how far she will go for what she believes.
