Lipscomb University’s Conversations Reading Series program presents “The Handmaid’s Tale”

Lipscomb University’s Conversations Reading Series program will present The Handmaid’s Tale, by Margaret Atwood, April 17, at 7:30 p.m., in the Student Center, located at 3901 Granny White Pike,
Nashville. The event is free and open to the public. Everyone is invited to attend.

Every situation in Atwood’s disturbing novel, about a society where
women are valued only if they are able to bear children, is based on
documented events that have occurred somewhere in the world. The story of
Offred, the main character, illustrates that even a well-intentioned society
can become oppressive and that the rights of any group are not inalienable
but are given by government.

The theme of this year’s Conversations series is “Society,
Suffering, and Solutions.” The student-directed program is designed to help
students be critical thinkers in and out of the classroom.
