Margaret Atwood Continues To Take Over TV

Margaret Atwood is having quite the year. First, Hulu released a 10-episode adaptation of her 1986 dystopian classic, “The Handmaid’s Tale”. Now, Netflix just released stills for their new miniseries, adapted from another Atwood novel, “Alias Grace”. This piece of historical fiction was published in 1996, depicting the real deaths of Thomas Kinnear and his pregnant mistress and housekeeper, Nancy Montgomery. These real characters are portrayed by a very talented ensemble of actors including “True Blood’s” Anna Paquin, “Chuck’s” Zachary Levi, “11.22.63’s” Sarah Gordon, and more. The miniseries, written and produced by Sarah Polley, is set to release on CBC in the fall.


In an era when everyone is glued to their phones — clicking, liking, rarely looking up — sharing cannabis is a simple way to connect in real life. It encourages you to pop your screen into your pocket, ease your tech neck, breathe, and savor the present moment. So, on a sunny afternoon in December, I was really looking forward to unplugging from virtual social networks, getting high, and instead plugging into a real network at Glitter & Gold, an all women's affair, hosted by Tokeatvity.
