Margaret Atwood will join the Guardian Live Book Club to talk about the first novel in her Maddaddam trilogy, the dystopian parable, Oryx and Crake.

Oryx and Crake (2003), was Atwood’s first return to the future since The Handmaid’s Tale, placing the reader in a world ravaged by a man-made plague. Atwood paints a stark warning about humanity’s impact on the natural world, in a novel she once described as a “fun-packed, joke-filled, rollicking adventure tale about the end of the human race.” She has said of her work, “I am not a prophet. Science fiction is really about now.”

This livestreamed event is part of the Guardian’s online Book Club series, in which chief books writer, Lisa Allardice, talks to leading writers about their latest novels, creative process and isolation. They will also be answering your live questions.
