Due to recently tightened Canadian restrictions on travel because of the Omicron variant, Ms. Atwood will be joining us on February 6th by Zoom projected on the stage of the UNCG Auditorium, rather than in-person.
Part I of this program will be a live presentation of performance pieces created by UNCG Faculty and Students in dance, music, and theatre and inspired by the poetry and prose of Margaret Atwood.
Part 2 of this program will be Margaret Atwood’s response to the performances and a moderated audience question–and–answer session with Ms. Atwood via Zoom.
Atwood, whose work has been published in more than forty-five countries, is the author of more than fifty books of fiction, poetry, critical essays, and graphic novels. Her latest novel, The Testaments, is a co-winner of the 2019 Booker Prize. It is the long-awaited sequel to The Handmaid’s Tale, now an award-winning TV series. Her other works of fiction include Cat’s Eye, finalist for the 1989 Booker Prize; Alias Grace, which won the Giller Prize in Canada and the Premio Mondello in Italy; The Blind Assassin, winner of the 2000 Booker Prize; The MaddAddam Trilogy; and Hag-Seed. She is the recipient of numerous awards, including the Peace Prize of the German Book Trade, the Franz Kafka International Literary Prize, the PEN Center USA Lifetime Achievement Award, and the Los Angeles Times Innovator’s Award. She lives in Toronto.
