  1. When are you coming to Mexico? I loved YOTF!

  2. Laura

    How about swinging through the Pacific Northwest (Oregon/Washington) sometime? We’ve got absolutely lovely scenery, the largest independent bookstore in the world (Powell’s), and some very devoted Atwood fans (of course).

    Are you coming to Chicago-i would be honored to hear you speak. i have read nearly everything you’ve written-strictly devoted fan! Anne Crowe

  4. Elvi

    I wonder who I need to talk to to get Ms. Atwood to Montreal? Would love to have another Blue Metropolis appearance! So sad to see Toronto, then Newfoundland, with no stops in between…

  5. Carol Ayres

    And if you’re in the Pacific Northwest, you can easily ramble down the coast to LA (or beyond)! I’m sure my favorite bookstore, Skylight Books, would be thrilled to host you. Not the biggest indy bookstore in the world, but they do have the biggest cat in the world. Hope you can come one day!

    Just leaving a reply so I can check the “Notify me of new posts via email” box.
    I’m a big fan! loved Ms. Atwood on the George Strombo… show and on Tout Le Monde en Parle. I second the request for a stop in Montreal.

    Is Margaret Atwood going to do any writers’ workshops in the future. A
    highliight of my life was the Aspen Writers Workshop that she did about
    30 years ago! I would go anywhere for another one. See you in Atlanta.
    and thank you. A poem that I wrote in her workshop was short listed for
    the Wm Faulkner Contest 2010!

  8. Dear Margaret,

    Unbelievably, I just discovered your tour, the very same night you are the closest to me — in Northern Florida. (I’m in SW Florida). I wish you the best of luck on your tour — maybe you can come back down to our area for our annual March Southwest Florida Reading Festival http://www.readfest.org. I enjoy your work tremendously. I’m in the middle of listening to the TYOTF and look forward to your future works.

    Best Regards!
