Mercury (Hobart) - - NEWS -

MAR­GARET At­wood fans will be fork­ing out big bucks to see her when she ap­pears in Ho­bart as part of an Aus­tralia-wide tour in Fe­bru­ary.

The tick­ets to the Fe­bru­ary 24 ap­pear­ance at Wrest Point are on sale from to­day for $70 to $132.

The tour, to pro­mote her lat­est book The Tes­ta­ments, the se­quel to her best­known work The Hand­maid’s Tale, fol­lows a sell-out run of dates across Europe, the US and Canada.

“I am so happy to be re­turn­ing to Aus­tralia, where I have spent much time in the past, and where read­ers have al­ways been so warm and wel­com­ing,” she re­cently said.

In a ca­reer span­ning five decades, the Cana­dian au­thor has pub­lished more than 50 books.
