Speaking of handmade tales
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.
