Science and Religion in Fiction book club: Margaret Atwood "The Handmaid's Tale"

"A gripping vision of our society radically overturned by a theocratic revolution."

"Offred is a Handmaid in the Republic of Gilead, serving in the household of the enigmatic Commander and his bitter wife. She must pray for the Commander to make her pregnant, for in a time of declining birthrates her value lies in her fertility. Offred can remember a time when she lived with her husband and daughter and had a job, before she lost even her own name. Now she navigates the intimate secrets of those who control her every move, risking her life in breaking the rules."

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
