Emma Watson really wants people to read “Little Women” before the movie hits theatres December 26.
The actress, who plays Meg March in Greta Gerwig’s new movie adaptation, shared numerous clips on her Instagram Story in which she hides copies of the book in various spots around London.
She placed copies of Louisa May Alcott’s 19th-century novel by monuments to Amy Winehouse, Agatha Christie, Mary Seacole, and more.
Watson, a keen activist and the HeForShe founder, also announced her “Little Women Book Fairies” mission on Instagram. She’s going to be hiding 2,000 copies of the book to celebrate the release of the upcoming flick.
The “Harry Potter” favourite said each book would have a special note from her inside.
