Title: Margaret Atwood accepts Nashville Public Library’s Literary Award
Location: Nashville, Tennessee, US
Description: With all the ongoing controversy over “legitimate rape” and the legislation of women’s bodies by lawmakers who clearly don’t understand them, many online commenters have invoked the dystopian landscape of Margaret Atwood’s classic speculative (or so we hope) novel The Handmaid’s Tale. That makes the choice of Atwood as the recipient of the 2012 Nashville Public Library Literary Award unusually timely.
