Writers On A New England Stage: Margaret Atwood
Coming up in September I am planning to go hear Margaret Atwood speak! I have just finished reading her latest book The Year of the Flood. I am sure that a lot of you have read it. (Leave a comment with your thoughts if you like.) Her dystopian literature is really thought provoking and engaging. Also, my favorite poem is written by Margaret Atwood. I posted it earlier this year because I wanted to share it with you guys. So when I was reading upcoming events on Atwood's website and noticed something in my state I was very excited.
New Hampshire Public Radio does this program called Writers On A New England Stage and it is recorded in Portsmouth, NH at an old music hall. The building itself sounds well worth seeing. "Its historic 900-seat theater, built in 1878, is the oldest in New Hampshire and designated an “American Treasure” by the U.S. Senate in the Save America’s Treasures Program administered by the National Trust for Historic Preservation and the National Park Service."(Quoted from the music hall website) There are a lot of great authors that have been on the program in the past, and if you are interested you can listen to the Mp3 online. I personally can't seem to get it streaming, but it is probably my old slow computer giving trouble.
I wish any of you who are Margaret Atwood fans could come with me!
