The Testaments Release Party!

When the van door slammed on Offred's future at the end of The Handmaid's Tale, readers had no way of telling what lay ahead for her—freedom, prison or death. With The Testaments, the wait is over.


This September, the Midtown Scholar Bookstore and Midtown Cinema are thrilled to celebrate the release party for Margaret Atwood's The Testaments! Join us for a fascinating conversation on the cultural relevancy of The Handmaid's Tale, the forthcoming The Testaments, and Atwood's oeuvre with F&M's Kerry Wright, Penn State Harrisburg's Ellen Stockstill, and the Cinema's Stuart Landon. (Margaret Atwood will NOT be making an appearance, sadly.

This event is free and open to the public.

To celebrate the release, the Midtown Cinema will be hosting a screening of Margaret Atwood: Live in Cinemas on Sunday, September 15th. If you present your ticket to the screening at the bookstore, enjoy 30% off The Testaments for a one-night only special price. For non-ticket holders, the Testaments will be available for a one-night only special price of 20% off.
