One Book One New Paltz 2022


 

NOVEMBER 13-19, 2022

 

The Benjamin Center is pleased to announce the 2022 One Book, One New Paltz selection: Hag-Seed by Margaret Atwood

In this imaginative retelling of William Shakespeare’s The Tempest, we follow the main character, Felix Phillips, once the renowned director of the Makeshiweg Theater Festival, as he copes with betrayal by his colleagues and loss of his livelihood, friends, and status. Felix’s life parallels that of The Tempest’s Prospero as he seeks and exacts revenge, ultimately finding redemption when he stages The Tempest in a theater program at a nearby correctional facility.
