Margaret Atwood Launches

Margaret Atwood has been busy planning for the September 22nd publication of The Year of the Flood and helping to create the book’s interactive website which launched this week. The site is packed with special features, including detailed info on the book tour that will span six countries and present live music by composer and singer Orville Stoeber. (You can purchase The Year of the Flood CD here, too!)

The site also features fundraising elements for several environmental organizations, a reading list, ring tones and sheet music. Here’s a snapshot:

“Atwood’s mischievous, suspenseful, and sagacious dystopian novel follows the trajectory of current environmental debacles to a shattering possible conclusion with passionate concern and arch humor.” —Donna Seaman, Booklist Online
