Author of “The Handmaid’s Tale” challenges those who want to stop kids from reading her book

Margaret Atwood, author of The Handmaid’s Tale, has a message (in the current issue of The Atlantic) for right-wing nuts trying to ban her book: “Go ahead and ban my book. To those who seek to stop young people from reading The Handmaid’s Tale: Good luck with that. It’ll only make them want to read it more.”

Hmmm, I wonder why the right wing would feel threatened by a book depicting the fascist theocratic takeover of America by a government that enslaves women?
