I’m Going to See Margaret Atwood!

I’m Going to See Margaret Atwood!

I’m trying to calm down, but it’s difficult. Margaret Atwood is my idol. She is just amazing. Her writing, her knowledge, her ability to share amazing ideas with the world… I’m all flustered. Front row, center. Yep. That’s me. I...
