The Details

Writers on a New England Stage @ The Historic Theater

Margaret Atwood

Margaret Atwood

“Atwood is funny and clever, such a good writer and real thinker…” –New York Times

The internationally acclaimed, award-winning novelist returns with the third book in her MaddAddam series, about the activist group that breaks away from “the God’s Gardeners.” Atwood has written more than 40 books including the Booker Prize winner The Blind Assassin.

Combining adventure, humour, romance, superb storytelling, and an imagination that is at once dazzlingly inventive and grounded in a recognizable world, MaddAddam is vintage Atwood, and a moving and dramatic conclusion to her internationally celebrated dystopian trilogy.

Book: MaddAddam
For each 1-2 tickets sold, the purchase of a book voucher ($27.95) is required. Vouchers can be redeemed on the night of the event for a signed copy of MaddAddam. Tickets & vouchers NOT available online, call or come by the box office.
