“We are thrilled to welcome Emma once again as a book fairy, this time in Paris,” Oxley told the publication. “We are having fun finding great places to hide ‘The Handmaid’s Tale’ and look forward to hearing from people who find them.”
Finders of Watson’s treasures have been excitedly tweeting all day:
