Nolite te bastardes carborundorum. Don’t let the bastards grind you down.

Margaret Atwood’s classic, The Handmaid’s Tale, has entered the conversation again, thanks in part to a new TV series and dystopian political climate south of the border.

Now you can join the Canadian legend herself as she signs and discusses The Handmaid’s Tale with Robyn Doolittle from The Globe and Mail. Head to Indigo Eaton Centre (220 Yonge) on Thursday April 13 from 7 to 8 p.m. for the signing. Details here.
