My agent, Jackie Kaiser, brought this to my attention:

Margaret Atwood speaking at the 2011 TOC (Tools of Change) conference. It’s of interest to anyone in publishing, especially authors.

Here is a link to some photos I took during a re-enactment of Josephine’s last supper, staged at the charming Château de la Petite Malmaison in Rueil-Malmaison. More photos to come … .
