Prepare a Gift for Margaret Atwood - 76th Birthday Tomorrow

Tomorrow, November 18, is Margaret Atwood’s 76th birthday.  Last year, in honour of her landmark 75th birthday, both CBC and BookRiot composed lists. 

The CBC’s list was entitled “75 Surprising Facts about Margaret Atwood” (http://www.cbc.ca/books/2014/11/75-surprising-facts-about-margaret-atwood.html).

BookRiot listed “75 Reasons Why Margaret Atwood is Awesome” (http://bookriot.com/2014/11/18/75-reasons-margaret-atwood-awesome/).

In preparation for her special day, I thought I’d post links to those two lists and challenge people to add a 76th reason why she is awesome. 

Here’s my contribution:  she is currently working on a revisitation of Shakespeare’s The Tempest which is scheduled for release before her next birthday.
