Video of the Week: Happy Birthday Margaret Atwood!

Share |

CanLit queen Margaret Atwood celebrates her birthday this week on Friday, November 18.

To celebrate our country's favourite literary scorpio, check out the interview above, courtesy of the CBC archives, where a 36-year-old Atwood easily fends off an interviewer's hopeful implications that she is either obsessed with death, obsessed with food or dislikes children.

During the course of your usual Friday night festivities, consider adding a toast to Atwood, whose tireless work on the literary, social and environmental fronts has enhanced Canadian culture for decades.
