Margaret Atwood fans, please read on.

Red Lion Books submitted an event idea to the publishers of Margaret Atwood’s forthcoming novel, THE TESTAMENTS and here is how the publisher responded,

“We love your idea of hiring an actor to read out personal and anonymous testaments. We sent the plans to Margaret and she was delighted!”

On the day of release, we hope to host a candlelit event at the shop where an actor will read from THE HANDMAID’S TALE and THE TESTAMENTS as well as reading our customers own testaments (which will be anonymous). We therefore urge you to send us your stories (which will be read in confidence and shared in anonymity). Please post them through our letterbox for total secrecy.

We hope it will be a powerful but sensitive event and ask you to email us at if you are interested in timings and more information.
