“Have you been watching the new Hulu series based on Margaret Atwood’s classic, The Handmaid’s Tale? We have 200 additional copies at Brooklyn Public Library featuring a brand-new introduction by the author.
Offred is a Handmaid in the Republic of Gilead. Women are no longer allowed to read, and she must lie on her back once a month and pray that the Commander makes her pregnant, because in an age of declining births, Handmaids are valued only if their ovaries are viable. She can remember the years before, when she lived and made love with her husband, Luke; when she played with and protected her daughter; when she had a job, money of her own, and access to knowledge. But all of that is gone now…
Join us for what is sure to be a fascinating discussion!”
