Adult Book Club Discussion: "The Handmaid's Tale" 

Please join us for the next meeting of our Adult Book Club scheduled for Tuesday, March 10, at 1:00 p.m.  We will be discussing the book "The Handmaid's Tale" by Margaret Atwood.
 

 

In Margaret Atwood’s dystopian future, environmental disasters and declining birthrates have led to a Second American Civil War. The result is the rise of the Republic of Gilead, a totalitarian regime that enforces rigid social roles and enslaves the few remaining fertile women. Offred is one of these, a Handmaid bound to produce children for one of Gilead’s commanders. Deprived of her husband, her child, her freedom, and even her own name, Offred clings to her memories and her will to survive. At once a scathing satire, an ominous warning, and a tour de force of narrative suspense, The Handmaid’s Tale is a modern classic.


Copies of the books are available upon request at the library.
