Speaker Biography: The more than 50 volumes of poetry, children's literature, fiction and nonfiction of Margaret Atwood have garnered numerous awards and critical plaudits, including the Canadian Booksellers' Lifetime Achievement Award and the Booker Prize (for "The Blind Assassin" in 2000). Her international best-selling "The Handmaid's Tale" was a major motion picture. Atwood is also the inventor of the LongPen, which allows an author to sign books from a remote location. Her latest novel is "MaddAddam," the concluding work in her dystopian trilogy, which was preceded by "Oryx and Crake" and "The Year of the Flood."
