Under Her Eye

Thursday 29th August 2019
18:30 - 19:30 at Waterstones, London - Piccadilly

The Handmaid's Tale has shaped two generations of readers with its powerful, devastatingly wry exploration of female oppression and its unforgettable portrait of defiance under an authoritarian regime.

Since it was first published in 1985, Margaret Atwood's vision has only grown in significance, becoming a rallying call at women's marches around the world following the election of Donald Trump, and taking on a new life in an acclaimed, Emmy Award-winning television adaptation that has prompted old and new readers to re-think about the original text and our current political landscape.

Soon we will be diving right back into Gilead with The Testaments, a most anticipated sequel that has been over thirty years in the making and will open a new window into Atwood’s dystopian world!

So, to celebrate its upcoming release, we'll be hosting an extraordinary Book Club here in Piccadilly!

Grab your old copy or read a new one for the first time to join us for an evening of sparkling conversation, literary banter, feminist discourse, performative activism and most importantly...THEMED COCKTAILS!

Wear something red if you also want to participate in our quick cosplay stint and a very special march....

Email us at [email protected] to book a spot: more details await those who join the revolution! Godspeed...
