Adult Book Club @ Zoom Meeting
Dec 17 @ 5:30 pm – 6:30 pm
Adult Book Club @ Zoom Meeting

The dystopia novel, The Handmaid’s Tale by Margaret Atwood delves the reader into an enthralling story about the oppression of women in the fallen U.S., known as Gilead. Pick up a copy of the book at the North Adams Library. If you prefer digital copies, you may download the e-book or audiobook from OverDrive. You’re invited to read or listen to the book at your leisure then come to the meeting via Zoom to socialize and discuss the book with friends. The book club meeting is at 5:30 p.m., on Thurs, Dec. 17.

Offred is a Handmaid in the Republic of Gilead. She may leave the home of the Commander and his wife once a day to walk to food markets whose signs are now pictures instead of words because women are no longer allowed to read. She must lie on her back once a month and pray that the Commander makes her pregnant, because in an age of declining births, Offred and the other Handmaids are valued only if their ovaries are viable. Offred can remember the years before, when she lived and made love with her husband, Luke; when she played with and protected her daughter; when she had a job, money of her own, and access to knowledge. But all of that is gone now . . .

Funny, unexpected, horrifying, and altogether convincing, The Handmaid’s Tale is at once scathing satire, dire warning, and tour de force.
