In 1985, Canadian author Margaret Atwood published a dystopian novel about a theocratic government called The Republic of Gilead, that emerged after the fall of the United States. Weeks before the official overturning of Roe vs. Wade in 2022, Atwood published an essay in The Atlantic: “I Invented Gilead. The Supreme Court Is Making It Real.” In this book club discussion, participants will discuss Atwood’s novel through a literary lens as well as examine how women’s lives in America have changed since the publication of Atwood’s dystopian classic. Instructor, Lori Ann Ayotte
