Thankful for Smart Authors

If you need some reading material this Thanksgiving weekend, check out this article from Elle magazine between two smart authors: Margaret Atwood and Louise Erdrich. It’s no surprise that I’m an Atwood fan – just click here to find out why – so I was pleased to come across this interview while flipping through a magazine in the living room yesterday. Atwood has received a fresh new fan-base thanks to the popularity of The Handmaid’s Tale – both a novel and a Hulu show. The Handmaid’s Tale is a frightening version of the future where women have been stripped of their rights and only certain women are able to birth and raise children. Meanwhile, author Louise Erdrich has written about another version of the future in her latest book, Future Home of the Living God. According to the Elle article, it’s “a wonderful, creepy, dystopian novel – in which women become prized, and quickly enslaved, for their ability to produce healthy babies.” While I’m not very familiar with Erdrich’s work, I have enjoyed Atwood’s books, and I think I’ll be putting Future Home of the Living God on my TBR list.

What are you reading this Thanksgiving weekend?
