Margaret Atwood Interview on Oryx & Crake, HBO MaddAddam Project & Writing Tips

KVSC is honored to present an interview with Booker Prize winning, Canadian speculative fiction author Margaret Atwood. Ms. Atwood spent an hour with KVSC on November 19, 2015 when she visited St. Cloud State University as part of the Common Read program.

Ms. Atwood discusses the moral controversies, scientific manipulation of species, as well as the key characters of her book Oryx and Crake, which new students read.

We also learn about HBO’s production of her Maddaddam book trilogy—it’s under production by Darren Aronofsky. He directed the film Black Swan and recently, the film Noah. Atwood discusses the Future Library Project and victimless leather. We also learn about the Longpen, an invention Atwood compares to a "beam me up Scotty" tool for writing. She shares thoughts on her latest book The Heart Goes Last and much more.

*Special thank you to Dr. Christine Metzo, pictured above in the orange sweater for her tenacity, leadership and outreach to bring Margaret Atwood to SCSU and kindly including KVSC.
