Bookmarks Presents Margaret Atwood
Bookmarks is thrilled to host Margaret Atwood on virtual tour for her new collection of poetry, Dearly. We are grateful to Wake Forest University for their support with this event.
This event is ticketed and requires a book purchase in order to attend. Our event copies of Dearly are special editions only available to event stops on this tour. Once you purchase a copy of Dearly below, Bookmarks staff will register you for the event (within 48 hours). The virtual event will take place on Crowdcast and the time will be Eastern time. You will receive an email confirmation of your event registration from Crowdcast.
Please note: The Bookmarks team processes each order individually, including event registrations. Within one day of your order placement, a team member will register you for the event and you will receive a separate email (to this same email address) with the event login and password. Although we do our best to process same-day event orders, if your order is placed within 24 hours of an event start time, we cannot guarantee that you will receive event log in information in time to watch the event. For Crowdcast events, you can access the recording after the live broadcast.
We are thrilled Margaret will be in conversation with another Bookmarks favorite, Madeline Miller. Madeline Miller was born in Boston and attended Brown University where she earned her BA and MA in Classics. She lives in Narbeth, PA with her husband and two children. The Song of Achilles was awarded the Orange Prize for Fiction and has been translated into twenty-five languages. Her latest novel, Circe, was the winner of the 2019 Indie Choice Award, shortlisted for the 2019 Women's Prize for Fiction, named one of the Best Books of 2018 by NPR, The Washington Post, People, Buzzfeed, Time, Entertainment Weekly, and many others. Both of her novels have been book club favorites at Bookmarks.
By registering and attending this event, you agree to have your email address added to our newsletter distribution list. You may opt out at any time.
About Margaret Atwood:
Margaret Atwood, whose work has been published in more than forty-five countries, is the author of more than fifty books of fiction, poetry, critical essays, and graphic novels. In addition to The Handmaid's Tale, now an award-winning TV series, her novels include Cat's Eye, short-listed for the 1989 Booker Prize; Alias Grace, which won the Giller Prize in Canada and the Premio Mondello in Italy; The Blind Assassin, winner of the 2000 Booker Prize; The MaddAddam Trilogy; The Heart Goes Last; and Hag-Seed. She is the recipient of numerous awards, including the Peace Prize of the German Book Trade, the Franz Kafka International Literary Prize, the PEN Center USA Lifetime Achievement Award, and the Los Angeles Times Innovator's Award. In 2019 she was made a member of the Order of the Companions of Honour in Great Britain for services to literature and her novel The Testaments won the Booker Prize and was longlisted for The Giller Prize. She lives in Toronto.
In Dearly, Margaret Atwood's first collection of poetry in over a decade, Atwood addresses themes such as love, loss, the passage of time, the nature of nature and - zombies. Her new poetry is introspective and personal in tone, but wide-ranging in topic. In poem after poem, she casts her unique imagination and unyielding, observant eye over the landscape of a life carefully and intuitively lived. While many are familiar with Margaret Atwood's fiction--including her groundbreaking and bestselling novels The Handmaid's Tale, The Testaments, Oryx and Crake, among others--she has, from the beginning of her career, been one of our most significant contemporary poets. And she is one of the very few writers equally accomplished in fiction and poetry. This collection is a stunning achievement that will be appreciated by fans of her novels and poetry readers alike.

"A bold and subversive retelling of the goddess's story," this #1 New York Times bestseller is "both epic and intimate in its scope, recasting the most infamous female figure from the Odyssey as a hero in her own right" (Alexandra Alter, The New York Times).
