Boston Lyric Opera joins the BPL Book Club “Fantastic Books and Where To Find Them” for a special series in advance of BLO’s operatic production of The Handmaid’s Tale. At this meeting, book group members discuss Naomi Alderman’s breakout novel The Power, inspired in part by Margaret Atwood’s classic dystopian tale.
