2018-19 One Book selection announced

“The Handmaid's Tale,” a book set in a dystopian future in which the U.S. government has been overthrown by an authoritarian regime that uses fertile women as handmaids to bear children for the ruling class, is Northwestern University’s One Book One Northwestern all-campus read for the 2018-19 academic year. The author of “The Handmaid's Tale,” Maragret Atwood, will deliver a keynote address Oct. 30 at Northwestern on both campuses. All first-year students are given a copy of the One Book each year.
