Amazon Releases Margaret Atwood's Latest Book a Week Too Early

Frankfurt Book Fair 2017 - Day 5

Amazon is apologizing for accidentally shipping Margaret Atwood's new novel ahead of its release date.

Atwood is the award-winning author of "The Handmaid's Tale," which is now a popular series on Hulu. Her new book "The Testaments" is a sequel to "The Handmaid's Tale," and was set for release tomorrow.
