Our reading of Margaret Atwood’s The Testaments has commenced!

This week, we’re talking about book chapters 1 through 23. So … spoilers abound.

Join Nerdette host Greta Johnsen, New York Magazine’s Heather Havrilesky and Vocalo’s Jill Hopkins as they contemplate the motives of Aunt Lydia, wonder what’s in that darn safe and talk smack about the mean girls of Gilead.

To follow along with us, read The Testaments through chapter 46 (pages 124-282) before next Friday, September 27.

And hey, we want to hear from you too! Share your thoughts with us by recording your voice with your smartyphone. (Please be succinct!) Then email the audio file to nerdettepodcast@gmail.com, preferably by Tuesday evening. You may hear yourself in an episode!

And when you need to tweet or Instagram something really important about the club, just use #NerdetteBookClub on the internets, and so will we.
