Author Margaret Atwood will take part in a virtual conversation for the Paramount Theatre.

The author will take part in "A Virtual Conversation for 2021 and Beyond" at 7 p.m. on Feb. 12. 

The virtual event will feature Atwood "reflecting upon her work, the tumult of 2020, as well as insights on an uncertain future." Atwood’s 1985 novel "The Handmaid’s Tale" was famously adapted into a Hulu television series, and its sequel, "The Testaments," won the 2019 Booker Prize
