Canadian Idol

Margaret Atwood is one of my idols from way back, since when I was assigned to read Surfacing in my first Women's Studies class. I've never seen her read, so it’s thrillingly exciting to see that she’ll be in town. (For goodness sake, give her a Nobel already!) From Politics & Prose bookstore:

We’re happy to announce that Margaret Atwood will be in the store Wednesday, November 19 at 4 p.m. to talk about PAYBACK: Debt and the Shadow Side of Wealth, her new collection of essays that explores the idea of debt as a central and ancient motif in religion, literature, and the structure of human societies.
