In this November 2020, the third Margaret Atwood Reading Month unfolded with participants from many places, some reading her for the first time, many returning to her work to try new and backlisted works, others exploring other #MARM content online (interviews, films, TV, etc.).
In the National Geographic atlas, in which the world map folds out into three sections, you could find #MARM participants on each segment of the map this year, from North America to South Asia, from Europe to Australia.
We are reading from the earlier days of MA’s career, with her first novel The Edible Woman, to the most recent publication, her collection of poems, Dearly. (Danielle at A Work in Progress started at the beginning and Karen at Kaggsy’s Bookish Ramblings read one of Dearly’s poems while Stefanie waited impatiently for her library copy to arrive.)
Ali at HeavenAli read Surfacing. (And, then, later, Maddaddam.)
Wad at the Australian Legend, Reese at Typings, and I re/read Cat’s Eye.
