Discuss The Handmaid's Tale with Twin Cities Alumni

7:00 PM  - 9:00 PM
Tuesday Jan 24, 2012
Home of Emily Erickson '08

Attention alumni readers! The Twin Cities MacReads Alumni Book Club will gather for its inaugural meeting to discuss Margaret Atwood's The Handmaid's Tale. Set in the near future, the book depicts life in what once was the United States, now called the Republic of Gilead. Reacting to social unrest, and a sharply declining birthrate, the new regime has reverted to - even gone beyond - the repression of the original Puritans.

Contact Emily Erickson '08 via email to RSVP and for directions to her home in Minneapolis.

This is a book club with a food component! In honor of the Handmaid in the story, please bring a red food dish to share - think tomatoes, berries, apples, radishes, red beans, beets, chocolate...

The group will meet the fourth Tuesday of each month at 7 p.m. Join us for interesting discussion with other Macalester alumni readers!
