We first discovered Margaret Atwood through her writing, so we do want to make that the core of our reading month celebration. But there are so many platforms for her work now: videos, mini-series, TV series, films, theatre, podcasts, choral works. So once you’ve read something, if you’re inspired to watch/listen/attend something: feel free to share those experiences as well.
Looking for inspiration?
Here is a complete bibliography on the author’s own site

So if you’ve never read one of her books and are looking for a comfortable nook to try? Here’s an opportunity. And if you’ve read them all and are looking for a reason to reread? This could be it. Or if you’re curious about something of hers you’ve never tried (maybe her essays or children’s books)? Why not now.
We’ve got some ideas (of course we do – that’s what started all this in the first place, too many ideas about reading and rereading) but we’re waiting to see how interested you are, and what you’re most interested in reading before we announce what specifically we’ll be reading and discussing for #MARM
Hope you’ll join! But, if not, we’ll just be over here, reading (and having cake) and reading some more.
