Suzanne Nelson brought an unorthodox approach to her presentation of The Handmaid's Tale, employing actors in costume and handheld signs underscoring the hypocrisy of the patriarchal society at the center of Atwood's novel at the Ridgefield Battle of 11/14/19.

The first time I read this I was pregnant and it was very difficult to take. I read it again a couple of years ago with students, and loved it. Then I read it again right before I read Testaments. Wow.

It reminds us how easy it could be for hard won gains to be upended by some orthodoxy or another. Also, gripping narrative.

Horrifyingly prescient and very well written work of speculative fiction.
