Atwood goes to Scotland “ and you can, too!

Adventure Canada is currently offering a week-long cruise of the Scottish Isles in the company of Margaret Atwood and her husband, Graeme Gibson. There is no information given on Adventure Canada’s website as to what Atwood and Gibson will actually be doing on the cruise, though presumably their itinerary will skew closer to things like lectures and birdwatching rather than shuffleboard, Love Boat-style romantic hijinks, and sangria on the Lido Deck.

Considering that, on a similar birdwatching trip to the Arctic, Atwood “discovered” future Giller-winner Vincent Lam, we can only assume that weight restrictions on unpublished novel manuscripts will be strictly enforced.
