Throughout September and early October of this year, Atwood will make several stops around Canada to read from The Testaments and answer audience questions.
Margaret Atwood’s The Handmaid’s Tale is even more popular and relevant than ever thanks to the critically acclaimed Hulu series of the same name, which is currently filming its third season. Now, Atwood is preparing a sequel more than thirty years after the original.
In an exclusive interview with Entertainment Weekly, Atwood revealed the cover for The Testaments, the sequel to The Handmaid’s Tale that is unconnected to the current Hulu series. The new novel will focus on Offred’s journey after the events of the first novel and will be narrated by three female characters.
Atwood also posted the cover on her Twitter shortly after. The new cover uses a green design for the handmaids, a large contrast from the infamous red that the series is known for.
