Margaret Atwood on Innovation

Hosted by

Margaret Atwood is the recipient of the Innovator's Award in this year's Los Angeles Times Book Prizes.  Atwood has adventurously embraced the frontiers of online literary culture, serializing short stories on sites like Byliner and Wattpad.  She reflects on her exploration of this new digital "toy box" and on literary innovation in general – talking about the festive tweet, the appetizing cliff-hanger, and why Hermes is the patron of the new(s).
