MaddAddam: A Novel (RANDOM HOUSE)
Friday • October 4 • 7:30pm
Town Hall Seattle, 1119 8th Avenue
Reading & Book Signing
Mega-bestselling author Margaret Atwood returns to Town Hall after a sold-out 2009 appearance with the long-awaited conclusion to her internationally celebrated dystopian trilogy. Bringing together characters from Oryx and Crake and The Year of the Flood, the thrilling (and palindromic!) MaddAddam confirms the ultimate endurance of humanity, community, and love. Set months after the Waterless Flood pandemic has wiped out most of humanity, MaddAddam combines adventure, humor, romance, superb storytelling, and an imagination that is at once inventive and grounded in a recognizable world—in other words, vintage Margaret Atwood.
Presented by Town Hall as part of the Arts & Culture series with University Book Store. Sponsored by City Arts.
