Book Club

March 6 @ 14:00 - 15:30

The next ACL Book Club is on Tuesday March 6th at 2 pm at Raconte Moi la Terre Bellecour.

The Handmaid’s Tale is a dystopian novel by Canadian author Margaret Atwood, originally published in 1985. It is set in a near-future New England, in a totalitarian, Christian theonomy that has overthrown the United States government. The novel focuses on the journey of the handmaid Offred. Her name derives from the possessive form “of Fred”; handmaids are forbidden to use their birth names and must echo the male, or master, whom they serve.

The Handmaid’s Tale explores themes of women in subjugation to misogyny in a patriarchal society and the various means by which these women gain individualism and independence.
