Margaret Atwood talks about MaddAdam

***SOLD OUT***The final part of Margaret Atwood's dystopian trilogy, Maddadam is published on 29th August this year.

In celebration of this, she will be discussing this book and the trilogy on Tuesday 27th August at the Queen Elizabeth Hall on the Southbank.  This is ridiculously well timed as we will be discussing Oryx and Crake on 12th August.

The event starts at 7.30pm however meetup details will be announced closer to the time.  Tickets cost £10-12 and can be booked through the following link:

http://www.southbankcentre.co.uk/whatson/margaret-atwood-77182

I have booked seats: AA19, AA20.

Here's the blurb from the website:

"Margaret Atwood discusses the hugely-anticipated final novel in her dystopian trilogy.

A man-made plague has swept the earth but a small group survives, along with the green-eyed Crakers - a gentle species bio-engineered to replace humans.

Told with wit, dizzying imagination and dark humour, Booker Prize-winning Margaret Atwood's MaddAddam is unpredictable, chilling and hilarious. It takes us further into a challenging dystopian world and holds up a skewed mirror to our own possible future.

This novel completes the trilogy which began with Oryx and Crakefollowed by The Year of the Flood."

    Great talk - Margaret Atwood was very sharp, darkly comic and amazing all round. Shame that the Interviewer was not as impressive. Managed to get my book signed and Margaret Atwood was very interested in our group and recommended two book s for our reading list. The first is The Coming Race by Bulwer Lytton: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Vril and then A Crystal Age by W H Hudson: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/A_Crystal_Age
    Both look really interestesting and may get set in the new year.
