Margaret Atwood’s protégée Naomi Alderman has taken the UK by storm with her book The Power. This feminist dystopian novel asks the question, what would happen if women suddenly possessed a fierce new power? Winner of the 2017 Baileys Women’s Prize for Fiction, The Power has been met with rave reviews. The television rights have been bought by Sister Pics, and the book is the perfect accompaniment to this fall's acclaimed adaptation of The Handmaid's Tale (based on Atwood's novel).

This event is presented in partnership with The New School and will take place at the Tishman Theater, University Center, 63 E Fifth Avenue at 13th Street.

Naomi Alderman is the author of The Liars' Gospel and Disobedience, which won the Orange Prize for New Writers, has been published in 10 languages, and is being made into a film by Rachel Weisz. She was selected for Granta's once-a-decade list of Best of Young British Novelists and was mentored by Margaret Atwood under the Rolex Mentor and Protégé Arts Initiative. She is the co-creator and lead writer of the bestselling smartphone audio adventure app, Zombies, Run! She contributes regularly to the Guardian, is Professor of Creative Writing at Bath Spa University and presents Science Stories on BBC Radio 4. She lives in London.

Margaret Atwood is the author of more than fifty books of fiction, poetry, and critical essays. Her novels include The Blind Assassin, winner of the Booker Prize; Alias Grace, winner of the Giller Prize in Canada and the Premio Montello in Italy; and The Robber Bride, Cat’s Eye, The Handmaid’s Tale – now a critically acclaimed television series – and The Penelopiad. In 2016, Hag-Seed, a novel visitation of Shakespeare’s play The Tempest and Angel Catbird – a graphic novel with co-creator Johnnie Christmas (Dark Horse), were published. In 2017, Margaret was awarded with the Peace Prize, the Franz Kafka International Literary Prize and the PEN Center USA Lifetime Achievement Award. Margaret Atwood lives in Toronto with writer Graeme Gibson.

The Rolex Mentor and Protege Arts Initiative is an international arts philanthropy that pairs master artists with young talents for a year of one-to-one creative exchange. Margaret Atwood and Naomi Alderman worked together as part of this program from 2012 to 2013.
