On Tuesday September 10, the wait will be over…THE TESTAMENTS, Margaret Atwood’s highly anticipated sequel to THE HANDMAID’S TALE, will be revealed. The momentous literary event will be celebrated as Fane Productions present an evening with the Canadian novelist, poet, literary critic and inventor.

Following the launch event you can experience it for yourself here at Symphony Hall as we host IN CONVERSATION WITH MARGARET ATWOOD.

The event will cover the length of Atwood’s remarkable career, her diverse range of works, and why she has returned to her seminal handmaid story, 34 years later. Don’t miss this remarkable evening this Autumn.
