Margaret Atwood at Manchester Literature Festival
Set in the same dystopian world as her previous novel Oryx and Crake, it tells the story of God's Gardeners - a religion devoted to the preservation of all species. The Gardeners have long predicted the Waterless Flood, which arrives in the form of a global pandemic obliterating most of human life. The survivors are left to battle over an existence amongst themselves and the other gene-spliced life forms now running amok - will the human race make it, and more to the point, should it?
The event will take place at Manchester Cathedral on Tuesday 1st September at 7.30pm. Tickets priced £8/£6 concessions are now on sale and can be booked through the box office on 0870 428 0785 or online, following this link.
