Celebrate Canada Book Day with Margaret Atwood

Celebrate Canada Book Day with Margaret Atwood Friday April 23, 2004 @ 12:30 pm (FREE)
Library and Archives Canada, 395 Wellington St.

Join Margaret Atwood, one of Canada's most celebrated authors and winner of the Booker Prize, for a reading followed by an audience Q&A. (Seating is limited - first come, first served).

(The day after) Very good reading overall and well organized. The reading was in the cafe room at the back of the lobby and was crammed full of people. The organizer was going to move the entire crowd into the auditorium if more people arrived for the noon reading. That would have been a mistake and there was grumbling in the audience when he said that. She read from a few books including the new edition Survival and Oryx and Crake. A major symposium on her works is this weekend at the University of Ottawa ($10.00). As usual there were hundreds lined up for the signing of her books. Luckily she was signing more than one book per person.
