A reading and book signing by author Margaret Atwood today — Thursday, May 11 — has been relocated to room 1120, Erie Hall. The Campus Bookstore will have copies of all Atwood’s book that are in print available for purchase at the event, which begins at 12 p.m.
Atwood has been a mainstay of the Canadian literary scene since the publication of her poetry volume Double Persephone in 1961. Her most recent books are the novel Hag-Seed, a retelling of William Shakespeare’s The Tempest, and two volumes of the superhero graphic novel Angel Catbird.
At today’s event, she will perform a brief reading and then answer questions from the audience before signing books.
