Everything’s atwood

This was the year the world discovered longstruggling Canadian author Margaret Atwood. Her 1985 dystopian novel, The Handmaid’s Tale, was turned into a 10-part Hulu series starring Elisabeth Moss that went on to win five Emmys and receive a second season renewal. Meanwhile, Atwood’s 1996 novel, Alias Grace, was also adapted into a six-part CBC/Netflix miniseries written and produced by Sarah Polley. Atwood was further honoured with the PEN Center USA’s Lifetime Achievement Award, the National Book Critics Circle’s Ivan Sandrof Award for Lifetime Achievement, and the Peace Prize of the German Book Trade. None of which entirely overshadowed a NIMBY controversy in which the author battled the development of a midrise condo in her Toronto neighbourhood.
