BIBCL6.3: Handmaid’s Tale Scrabble

Dystopian Games: Handmaid’s Tale Scrabble

In world where reading is against the law, the Handmaid’s Tale Scrabble game is flirting with a death sentence. “Quick, eat those words.”

Listen to our second episode (third overall) discussing the narrative of The Handmaid’s Tale. There are more Trump jokes (#sorrynotsorry), but also clever Biblical puns! And because we’re shameless self-promoters, we mention our own book Printer’s Error at every logical opportunity. (Have you purchased a copy yet?)

Rebecca Romney and JP Romney’s book Printer’s Error: Irreverent Stories from Book History is available from HarperCollins at all the usual places, including Amazon and Barnes & Noble.
