Margaret Atwood will join the UC Santa Cruz community for a free, live, virtual event on Tuesday September 22 at 4:30 PM PT. Part of The Humanities Institute’s Deep Read Program, this event culminates months of in-depth programming and community engagement focused on Atwood’s latest Booker Prize-winning novel, The Testaments, a sequel to her 1985 classic The Handmaid’s Tale.
The 2020 Peggy Downes Baskin Ethics Lecture will feature Atwood in conversation with Kate Schatz (Stevenson ‘01, Creative Writing), the New York Times-bestselling author of Rad American Women A-Z . William “Bro” Adams (Ph.D. History of Consciousness ’82), Chair of the National Endowment for the Humanities from 2014 to 2017, will be the event MC.
The 2020 Deep Read Program is made possible through the generous support of the Helen and Will Webster Foundation.
