Margaret Atwood, Kelly Corrigan

Funny and insightful, the iconic novelist muses on visions of learning, work and women’s lives a century from now, and tells tales of growing up in the wilderness of Canada where there was literally, she says, nothing there. Atwood and host Kelly Corrigan trade stories on what no one tells new mothers, and try to figure out what bioengineering means for humanity. Few people writing today have Margaret Atwood’s depth of perspective and devilish sense of humor. She’s written 53 books in about as many years, which means she has thought through just about everything. From first to last, Atwood’s directness and humanity leave you with a sense of peering into a future both dark and hopeful.
