Margaret Atwood speaks at Bristol Festival of Ideas
August 28, 2013, 12:00 AM EDT
The Bristol Festival of Ideas aims to stimulate people’s minds and passions with an inspiring programme of discussion and debate throughout the year.
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.
