Book Club: ‘The Testaments’ Part 2 (Chapters 24 Thru 46)

We’re two thirds of the way through Margaret Atwood’s The Testaments, and we’ve got a lot to talk about.

This week is all about chapters 24 through 46, and our panel of intrepid feminists questions whether these storylines are just a little toooo convenient, whether it’s really possible to rip a person apart with your bare hands … and what the deal is with all that warm milk.

Want to be a part of the #NerdetteBookClub? Easy! Just press play and join Nerdette host Greta Johnsen, New York Magazine’s Heather Havrilesky and Vocalo’s Jill Hopkins.

Just make sure you finish The Testaments before next Friday, October 4. That’s when we’ll talk all about the ending.

And we want to hear what you thought about the book! (Please tell us how you felt on a scale of 1 to 10 warm milks.)

Share your thoughts with us by recording your voice with your smartyphone. Then email the audio file to nerdettepodcast@gmail.com, preferably by Tuesday evening. You may hear yourself in the final episode!
