Don’t miss a pre-release screening of “The Handmaid’s Tale,” the wildly popular Emmy Award-winning series that serves as a cautionary tale for modern society. After the exclusive viewing of the new season’s first episode, join us for an exciting conversation moderated by Tina Jordan of The New York Times with celebrated author Margaret Atwood, who wrote the book upon which the show is based. Atwood will discuss the visionary feminist themes of the series and how progress is neither automatic nor irreversible in any era, an idea that resonates as much today as it did 30 years ago.

This event was part of the 20th Anniversary TimesTalks Festival weekend, from April 13–15, 2018.
