Margaret Atwood In Conversation with Joyce Carol Oates

A meeting of two extraordinary minds: prolific authors, Margaret Atwood and Joyce Carol Oates, join Fane Online for this exclusive event.

In a wide-reaching conversation, Atwood and Oates will compare notes and share stories from their expansive careers. Expect the unexpected - from poetry to Twitter and what it is to be human, from Gothic romances and supernatural fantasy to the duty of a writer, the two friends will take you on a journey of unusual and memorable entertainment.

This is a unique opportunity to spend an evening with two of the most celebrated authors working today. Do not miss it.

Oates is the author of over 100 books, a five-time Pulitzer finalist and 2019 recipient of the Jerusalem Prize. Best known for her fiction, Oates' novels include them, which won the National Book Award; Blonde, a bold reimagining of the inner life of Marilyn Monroe; The Falls, which won the France's Prix Femina; The Gravedigger’s Daughter and Little Bird of Heaven, each set in upstate New York; and We Were the Mulvaneys, which follows the disintegration of an American family and which became a bestseller after being selected by Oprah's Book Club. Since 1963, forty of Oates’s books have been included on the New York Times list of notable books of the year.

Atwood is the author of more than fifty books of fiction, poetry and critical essays. Her novels include Cat’s Eye, The Robber Bride, Alias Grace, The Blind Assassin and the MaddAddam trilogy. Her 1985 classic, The Handmaid’s Tale, went back into the bestseller charts with the election of Donald Trump, when the Handmaids became a symbol of resistance against the disempowerment of women, and with the 2017 release of the award-winning Channel 4 TV series. The Testaments, her long-anticipated sequel to The Handmaid’s Tale, won the 2019 Booker Prize. Dearly, Atwood’s first poetry collection in over a decade, published in November 2020.
