The Deep Read: Margaret Atwood
The Peggy Downes Baskin Ethics Lecture & Alumni Weekend Keynote
Join us as we welcome writer Margaret Atwood to the UC Santa Cruz campus to discuss her award winning books, and the ways in which her fiction reflects our cultural and political realities. Atwood will be in conversation with author Kate Schatz (Stevenson ‘03, Creative Writing), the New York Times-bestselling author of Rad American Women A-Z.
Tickets - Admission is $30.
This event is part of The Deep Read, a new program by The Humanities Institute at UC Santa Cruz that invites curious minds to think deeply about literature, art, and the most pressing issues of our day. We’ll read books from a wide range of genres, exploring their implications on our politics, inner lives, and communities.
Margaret Atwood is the author of more than fifty books of fiction, poetry and critical essays. Her most recent, record-breaking novel, The Testaments—sequel to her 1985 classic The Handmaid’s Tale—won the 2019 Booker Prize. Her other work includes the Giller and Booker Prize-shortlisted Oryx and Crake, as well as Alias Grace, The Robber Bride, Cat’s Eye, and Booker winner The Blind Assassin.
