I haven't read anything by Margaret Atwood but she was on the BBC and PBS news shows the other night doing interviews and promoting her new book. She is a no BS person. :) I loved the interviews, she was great. I'm going to have to read one of her books now.
I was lucky enough to see her speak at our local university. She was so interesting. Really intelligent. I loved her. And she said she would stay and sign books until the last person got one, and unfortunately, I could not stand in line. I had injured my back and there was just no way I could've done it. Just sitting listening to her was killing me. I had to go home.

Bums me out just thinking about it.

I've read The Handmaid's Tale and plan to read her sequel. I will eventually, but haven't watched Season 3 of the series yet as I'm still PO'd about the conclusion of Season 2. :glare:

Had a nice conversation with Margaret Atwood at the PEN awards a couple years ago but didn't discuss her books specifically. My daughter was very jealous and I got the Oh My God! when I told her about it.
