About this talk:
According to Margaret Atwood, death and reading should not be associated. Canada's literary legend discusses her involvement in a recent death project, and the future of reading -- but in two separate contexts, of course. She also provides commentary on the education of women and its contribution as the single largest driving force in the world economy. Watch and listen to Atwood's knowledgeable and clever insight on societal ideas about death, technological advances versus environmental concerns, as well as the increase in different ways of reading.

About this speaker:
Margaret Atwood is among the most-honoured authors of fiction in recent history. She is a winner of the Arthur C. Clarke Award and Prince of Asturias award for Literature, has been shortlisted for the Booker Prize five times, winning once, and has been a finalist for the Governor General's Award seven times, winning twice.
