Coming up




Margaret Atwood SOLD OUT

 Margaret Atwood

Wed 28 August 2013, 18.15-19.15 (PAST EVENT)
St George's Bristol (see map)


Booker-prize-winning Margaret Atwood’s presentation of The Year of the Flood was one of the highlights of the 2009 Festival of Ideas – and one of the best book launches ever. Her new novel MaddAddam is the concluding part to the Oryx and Crake Trilogy telling the story of the remnants of humanity after the Waterless Flood pandemic.

Told with her usual wit, dizzying imagination, and dark humour, Margaret Atwood’s unpredictable, chilling, and hilarious new book takes us further into a challenging dystopian world and holds up a skewed mirror to our own possible future. She remains one of the world’s leading writers and thinkers.

This event is sold out. Contact the box office for returns or waiting list information.


Margaret Atwood is the author of over 40 books of fiction, poetry and essays. Her books include: Cat’s Eyes, The Handmaid’s Tale, Alias Grace, The Blind Assassin and Oryx and Crake. Visit her website at
