BOOKS:
"The Handmaid's Tale" author Margaret Atwood: "I have never believed it can't happen here"
Canadian author Margaret Atwood's 1985 dystopian novel, "The Handmaid's Tale," about a United States taken over by Christian zealots who force women to serve as sex slaves and child bearers for a powerful elite, became a bestseller and an Emmy-winning TV series. It has also introduced the iconography of Gilead into today's political discussions. Now, Atwood has penned a sequel, "The Testaments." She tells correspondent Margaret Teichner that while she wrote the books as a warning, she does not see herself as a prophet.

They discuss where the #MeToo movement has gone in the past two years.

For the past 11 years they have been a top draw in Las Vegas. But after almost 1,700 performances, they've decided to bring the curtain down on themselves this November.
