Welcome to the beginning of the tour! This is the first post. Here is a picture of me in the garden with Giant phlox, before starting out. Will I shrink during the tour? Will I survive it?

  1. Dear Ms. Atwood,

    You are a brave lady–jumping feet first into using social media tools like Twitter and beginning to blog. Yesterday I read all your Twitter posts. This summer I have been taking my own journey with social media–started a blog and began to Twitter. I share your pain.

    Have you heard about the 200 year old tweets of John Quincy Adams (JQAdams_MHS )? He journalled from the time he was 12. They are tweeting his short form journal for a sea voyage to Russia that began in August 1809. I think you would enjoy it.

    I look forward to following your green journey as you share your new book and your songs. May you have joy each day.

    Welcome to the realm of the blog. My phlox is MUCH smaller than yours, but I am nevertheless fond of it!

    Margaret Atwood, you are a literary goddess. Of course you’ll survive this tour! If you can write the amazing stuff you’ve written, you can do anything. This is so exciting! Horray!

    If Canlit can survive, so can you: you who told us we were all about it.

    Hello Margaret

    I came to the event at Manchester Cathedral last night (1 September). I feel I must let you know that it was impossible to hear what the actors/readers were saying for about 80% of the time. I read elsewhere that you’ll be using different people (which is great) and perhaps other venues will be less problematic in terms of accoustics and the audience not being able to see those doing the reading. It was the combination of these two things that prevented me from being able to hear. One of the actors spoke very quickly and it just wasn’t possible to follow what they were saying. My partner, who has very good hearing also struggled, and I saw from the expressions of others sitting opposite that they were having difficulty. Its a real shame as the event was a refreshing change from the standard book launch format.

    Hope you enjoy the rest of your stay in the UK.

    Debbie

    No need to fear anything. You will have a warm welcome and a huge audience in Hamburg Germany on Oct. 20th.
