Emma Watson Hides Copies Of ‘The Handmaid’s Tale’ Around Paris

Emma Watson is at it again!

Watson, 27, has partnered with The Book Fairies to hide copies of Margaret Atwood’s classic dystopian novel “The Handmaid’s Tale” around Paris, France. She tweeted photos of the French-language edition of Atwood’s seminal 1985 book that she’s dropping in hidden spots around the City Of Light. The copies include a hand-written note from the “Harry Potter” star.

Watson, who was born in Paris and grew up in England, has previously left books by female authors around various cities. Last fall, she left hidden caches of Maya Angelou’s “Mom & Me & Mom” around New York and London subways as part of the Books On The Underground programme which has been on-going since 2012. To celebrate International Women’s Day this past March, the actress and activist hid books by Caitlyn Moran and Gloria Steinem.

Watson also leads a worldwide online feminist bookclub called Our Shared Shelf which focuses on books by female authors.

The official Book Fairies twitter account posts clues as to the whereabouts of the books in Paris.

Fans have been posting photos of found copies of “The Handmaid’s Tale” on Twitter.
