Spend an evening with the bestselling, double Booker Prize-winning phenomenon that is Margaret Atwood, as she discusses her new book, Burning Questions.

Live on stage, Atwood will be answering questions from the book, plus those posed by the audience, such as: why do people everywhere, in all cultures, tell stories? So what if beauty is only skin deep? How can we live on our planet? Is it true? Is it fair? And what do zombies have to do with authoritarianism?

Tackling a myriad of subjects including feminism and freedom, the environment and technology, beauty, storytelling, and when to dispense advice to the young (answer: only when asked), Atwood will aim her prodigious intellect and impish humour at the world, and report back to us on what she finds.

Join us for an unmissable, surprising, and intimate evening with all of Atwood’s signature insight and razor-sharp wit. Entertaining yet edifying, down-to-earth yet visionary; we have no better questioner of the many and varied mysteries of our universe.
