Margaret Atwood’s next book is sure to be a classic for our great-great-grandchildren, seeing as it won’t be readable until 2114. As the inaugural participant in the Future Library project, Atwood presented the manuscript for her book over the weekend and announced the title: Scribbler Moon. British publisher Hamish Hamilton documented the whole thing on Twitter, including this adorable photo of Atwood parting ways with her manuscript. Ninety-nine years from now, 10 of the 1,000 trees planted by this public arts project will be cut down to print Atwood’s book. Read more about the ceremony here.
