There's even a special message from Watson included inside. 

June 27, 2017

Emma Watson has a knack for hiding books in secret locations, having already hidden 100 copies of “Mom & Me & Mom” by Maya Angelou across the London Underground and across New York City’s subways last year.

The actress is back at it again, stashing away copies of Margaret Atwood’s novel, “The Handmaid’s Tale” across Paris.

The novel, which has recently been turned into a hit television show, delves into a dystopian universe where the Republic of Gilead has taken over and created a society where particular members find themselves stripped of their independence and individualism. 

Watson, who is currently reading the novel as part of her book club, Our Shared Self, teamed up with The Book Fairies, an organization that hides books around the world for people to find, for the endeavor.

A total of 100 signed copies of the book have been tucked away throughout Paris, with a special note from the actress inside.

And some have already been found.

The partnership between the Book Fairies and Our Shared Self is in celebration of International Women’s Day, giving women around the world a chance to “raise their voices, to be heard, and to take action,” according to the group’s website.
