Margaret Atwood 

When: Tue., Sept. 19, 7 p.m. 2017
Price: free admission, but registration is required
The TV adaptation of The Handmaid's Tale has raised writer Margaret Atwood's profile in the public consciousness, but for those in the know, Atwood was already a singular artist. She has written novels, poetry, criticism, short fiction, children's books and libretti. Throughout her writing she advocates for women's rights, animal rights, a better relationship with nature and a more humanistic approach to the world and each other. She's prickly about how her work is classified by others, and about how her homeland — Canada — is viewed by Americans. She's a true original; brilliant, thoughtful and a gifted stylist. Tonight at 7 p.m. Margaret Atwood receives the 2017 St. Louis Literary Award at the Sheldon (3648 Washington Boulevard). Admission is free, but registration is required. Visit for details.
