On April 23rd 2016 – the day of World Book Night – I found myself at the White Swan hotel in Halifax, UK under the alias Miss Issippi-Mudpie. My partner in crime accompanied me under the guise of Commander Twinkie.
Both of us came equipped with our own handmade rubber stamps, based on The Handmaid's Tale by Margaret Atwood.

Everyone involved was later very gratified to find that the author herself (Margaret Atwood) approved of the event and a set of the collected cards was sent her way.
