Discussion Guides

One Book has created a guide for groups interested in discussing Margaret Atwood’s novel, The Handmaid’s Tale. The guide explores real-world case studies of the book's themes and presents questions to facilitate deeper thinking about the topics and ideas Atwood presents.

We have provided PowerPoint and PDF versions of the discussion guide for anyone in the community—including residence halls, residence colleges, and academic and professional departments—to use when leading discussion groups.

If you would like a One Book fellow to facilitate a discussion group for you, email us at or call us at 847-467-2294, and we will set up a date and time for your book group discussion.

Stay tuned for discussion guides!
