Description

Canceled

In March, the Open Book Club will read and discuss 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.

All are welcome to attend, and if you purchase your book in the store you will receive a 10% discount.
