Margaret Atwood to tour Australia & NZ next year

On the back of her Booker-prize winning The Testaments, Margaret Atwood will be emarking on a tour of Australia and New Zealand in February and March. 

The events will be 'in conversation', where the audience will join Atwood as she reflects on her writing career of over 60 works spanning poetry, novels, short fiction and even a graphic novel. There will also be Q&A opportunities at each event, so if you've ever wanted to ask Margaret Atwood your deep burning questions about your Handmaid's Tale theories, now is the time! 

With her her announcement of the tour, Atwood said:

'I am so happy to be returning to Australia, where I have spent much time in the past, and where readers have always been so warm and welcoming.'

Atwood will be preceding her Aussie tour with a visit to our Kiwi friends, touring Wellington, Auckland and Christchurch 10-11 February. The Australian tour starts with two nights in Sydney on 16 Feb, before hitting up Canberra, Brisbane, Melbourne, Hobart and Perth.
