In Conversation with Charles Pachter and Margaret Atwood

March 29, 2016, 12:00 AM EDT

Live in conversation, Charles Pachter and Margaret Atwood speak about their iconic work. “The Journals of Susanna Moodie” is a book of poetry by Margaret Atwood, first published in 1970. In the book, Atwood adopts the voice of Susanna Moodie, a noted early Canadian writer and attempts to imagine and convey Moodie’s feelings about life in rural Canada in the 19th century.
Charles Pachter began illustrating the poems in 1968, when Atwood sent him a first manuscript of her book. The book was later republished in 1997 with a series of illustrations by Charles Pachter.
