What’s happening at the Cranbrook Public Library

Mike Selby

‘The Testaments’ is Margaret Atwood’s long awaited (34 years) sequel to ‘The Handmaid’s Tale. A new generation tries to cope in Atwood’s horrifying future; and she even managed to write in a few details from the television series.

After her unicorn goes missing, a young girl stumbles into a hidden world where the occupants believe she is not who she says she is in Katherine Magyarody’s ‘The Changeling of Fenlen Forest.’
