Little Dixie Reading Group - "The Handmaid's Tale"

"The Handmaid's Tale" by Margaret Atwood
March 17, 2011 @ 5:15pm

It is the world of the near future, and Offred is a Handmaid in the home of the Commander and his wife. She is allowed out once a day to the food market, she is not permitted to read, and she is hoping the Commander makes her pregnant, because she is only valued if her ovaries are viable. Offred can remember the years before, when she was an independent woman, had a job of her own, a husband and child. But all of that is gone now...everything has changed.
