London SYP Book Club – February 2017 – The Handmaid’s Tale by Margaret Atwood

February 20 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm

The Handmaid's Tale

Book: 'The Handmaid's Tale' by Margaret Atwood

Genre: Dystopian Fiction

Venue: The Sun Tavern, Covent Garden

Synopsis: The Republic of Gilead offers Offred only one function: to breed. If she deviates, she will, like dissenters, be hanged at the wall or sent out to die slowly of radiation sickness. But even a repressive state cannot obliterate desire - neither Offred's nor that of the two men on which her future hangs. Brilliantly conceived and executed, this powerful evocation of twenty-first century America gives full rein to Margaret Atwood's devastating irony, wit and astute perception.
