Readers and Writers Week

Join Canadian literary icon Margaret Atwood on a celebration of the written word and storytelling as a craft. The Meighen Forum brings together writers, playwrights and artists to lead conversations on the opportunities and challenges found when navigating the shifting worlds outside of a play’s representation of society.

On Adaptation: Margaret Atwood with Emma Donoghue

From The Handmaid's Tale’s breakout success on HBO to Room’s awards-laden film version, adapting literary works for both the big and small screen open them up to new audiences. Acclaimed authors Margaret Atwood and Emma Donoghue sit down to discuss what goes into adapting their work for different mediums and what challenges and opportunities exist in film and television.

Support for The Meighen Forum is generously provided by Kelly & Michael Meighen and the T.R. Meighen Family Foundation.
