Got back from Norway, where we did the first Future Library launch, with artist Katie Paterson and the Oslo Library. Using this landing page, we Periscoped the event, took questions via Twitter, and signed 50 dedicated and numbered e-covers of “Scribbler Moon,” which will not be read for 100 years. http://futurelibrary.fanado.com
Wattpad ran a writing contest at the same time: Margaret Atwood’s ‘Dear 2114’ Future Library Writing Contest.
The results of the launch can be seen at: http://www.slideshare.net/OsloBusinessRegion/future-library-oslo. An amazing event!
I’ve agreed to contribute to Hope Nicholson’s graphic art and comics project, Secret Loves of Geek Girls, by drawing some comic strips for it.
You can find this unusual project at: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/hopelnicholson/the-secret-loves-of-geek-girls I’m the white-haired one with the cat.
Speaking of comics, I’ve just got the “pencils” for the graphic version of The Handmaid’s Tale from artist Renée Nault. Exciting to have reached this stage!
And Beau’s All-Natural Brewery has just done another “edition” of NooBroo, made in honour of the MaddAddam Trilogy. http://beaus.ca/beer/maddaddamites-noobroo/
This beer contains ingredients mentioned in the trilogy, its labels echoes motifs from the books, and the sale of it benefits the Pelee Island Bird Observatory. Virtuous beer!
Margaret's full Event Schedule can be viewed HERE.
The paperback of The Heart Goes Last will be published this fall, with some interesting covers in the UK and North America. I’ll post the covers when they’ve been revealed….
My new novel, Hag-Seed – part of the Hogarth Shakespeare project – will appear in October. It’s a re-visiting of Shakespeare’s play The Tempest, and I had a fine time writing it!
Cover views are here on the home page and also in the Shop.
For book tour events in the UK, the US, and Canada, go to the Events section where we will be adding the locations and information over the next few weeks.
I’m also working on a graphic novel series called Angel Catbird. The superhero is a combo of cat, bird, and human, so he can see all sides of the cat-bird problem. Volume 1 will be published by Dark Horse Comics on September 6. Right now I’m writing the script for Volume 2: To Castle Catula. Count Catula is a bat-cat-vampire combo. The plot thickens! Nature Canada supplies the factual part of this project: @safecatsafebird.
