What Maggie’s Reading: Handmaid’s Tale Edition

I’ve been reading everything I’ve run across on The Handmaid’s Tale. Everything. If you haven’t read The Handmaid’s Tale, now is the time to read it. It’s hard to get through, and hard to reread. This dystopian future isn’t too far off from where we are now and isn’t actually out of the realm of possibility. I highly recommend the book and the show, as hard as both can be to get through, there’s an important lesson from both. If you haven’t been watching, some of these articles may contain spoilers. Be careful reading.
