Opera Book Club

The HD Live in Schools virtual Opera Book Club resumes this year, inviting students to join online conversations with authors, experts, and Met artists who have helped bring these stories to both page and stage. This fall, students will focus on Sister Helen Prejean’s memoir Dead Man Walking, the basis for both its Oscar–winning film adaptation and Jake Heggie and Terrence McNally’s opera. Next, students will turn their attention to The Autobiography of Malcolm X, as Told to Alex Haley. The Met Opera Education team works with publishers to provide students and teachers in participating districts with free copies of featured books.
