At the end of Margaret Atwood’s 1985 dystopian novel The Handmaid’s Tale, it seems that the unnamed protagonist has fled the misogynistic and oppressive Republic of Gilead. Readers can find out for sure when the book’s sequel, The Testaments, enters the world this week. To mark the occasion, the Canadian author discusses her career with fellow writer Samira Ahmed at London’s National Theatre. The conversation is transmitted to more than 1,000 cinemas around the world, including two in Vermont. Representatives from advocacy groups such as the Vermont Women’s Fund and the Clarina Howard Nichols Center are on hand at the Stowe screening.
