    Margaret Atwood is having an 80th birthday celebration tonight, and you’re invited (to watch the festivities via a livestream)! The New York Public Library is hosting the celebration of Atwood’s life and work, featuring readings from Claire Danes, Ann Dowd, Erin Morgenstern, Jia Tolentino, and Rebecca Traister, along with a performance from the Boston Lyric Opera.

    Naturally, Margaret Atwood will also be there, hopefully sitting on a throne of some kind.

    You can watch all the fêting on the NYPL’s website, starting at 7 EST.
