Margaret Atwood is one of our favourite writers, so we are excited to hear that she is coming to London this August to speak at the South Bank Centre. She’s discussing MaddAddam, the final novel in her dystopian trilogy, which – oh thank goodness – will be published in August. Time, just enough, to read the brilliant first two books in the trilogy: Oryx and Crake and The Year of the Flood. Atwood is hugely loved and respected and we’ve heard that she’s great in person, so we’re not surprised to find out that tickets in the stalls to her talk have already sold out. There are, though, still tickets in rear stalls, so do get booking now if you want to see and listen to this most seminal and singular writer.
