Presented by Book Fest In Your Living Room
In partnership with the National JCC Literary Consortium
In conversation with Holly Firfer, Atlanta Media Personality
Zoom Author Talk, Q & A. This event was pre-recorded and questions were solicited in advance from viewers.
Margaret Atwood needs little introduction and, in 2021, is more culturally influential than ever. Ms. Atwood is the author of more than fifty bestselling and award-winning books such as Alias Grace, the MaddAddam Trilogy, The Handmaid’s Tale, and The Testaments as well as many memorable poems, critical essays, graphic novels, and short stories. “Book Festival in Your Living Room” is honored to host Ms. Atwood in conversation with Holly Firfer to talk about her latest work of fiction, “Two Scorched Men,” a Scribd Original.
A short story that draws from characters and places in Ms. Atwood’s own life, “Two Scorched Men” is a semi-autobiographical tale about the author’s time in Provence. At its center is a friendship between two very different and eccentric men whose lives were transformed by World War II and by personal tragedy.
The story is a tribute to the power of connection and resilience and is as funny and affectionate as it is unsentimental about what it means to be human.
