30th Season Fundraiser with

Margaret Atwood

In conversation with novelist Esi Edugyan

30 seasons of creating community through the literary arts

SUPPORT PITTSBURGH ARTS & LECTURES FOR THE NEXT 30 SEASONS!

While many are familiar with the iconic feminist writer, Margaret Atwood’s fiction—including her groundbreaking and bestselling novels The Handmaid’s Tale and The Testaments, among others—she has, from the beginning of her career, been one of our most significant contemporary poets. And she is one of the very few writers equally accomplished in fiction and poetry.

In Dearly, Margaret Atwood’s first collection of poetry in over a decade, Atwood addresses themes such as love, loss, the passage of time, the nature of nature and – zombies. Her new poetry is introspective and personal in tone, but wide-ranging in topic. In poem after poem, she casts her unique imagination and unyielding, observant eye over the landscape of a life carefully and intuitively lived. This collection is a stunning achievement that will be appreciated by fans of her novels and poetry readers alike.
