It’s impossible to talk about dystopian literature without mentioning Margaret Atwood. A true literary legend with over 50 novels, her writing has proved as timeless as it is prophetic. For instance, The Handmaid’s Tale—currently an Emmy-award winning Hulu series—feels as relevant today as it was when published in 1985.

Atwood has always possessed the uncanny ability to predict the future of technologies and society, and nowhere is that more apparent than in her book Oryx and Crake: covering a host of issues including genetic manipulation, corporate domination, and global pandemics.

Sharing her thoughts on the intersections of technology and humanity, Atwood challenges audiences to think critically and engage with the world around them from different angles, employing her expertise as a writer to the spoken word in a candid, relatable way.
