Exploring Shakespeare…A New Book Group With Jenny Tripp

December 7, 2007

Most of us have a literary to-do list that includes “read more Shakespeare.” Despite his being arguably the most importantwriter ever, sitting down to read a play all by oneself can seem like facing a plate of broccoli. You know it’s good for you,but it’s awfully hard to dig in. Our new Shakespeare reading group will help you make good on your lofty intentions – andhave fun doing it, too. Starting Thursday, January 17th, and running monthly after that (2/21, 3/20, and 4/17) Jenny Trippwill moderate as we read a series of four plays in roughly chronological order. The first will be Henry IV, Part I, a history play,followed by Love’s Labors Lost, Coriolanus, and The Tempest. Copies of the plays, as well as recorded audio performances, will be availableat the library in early December. We’ll read, explore, discuss, and enrich ourselves — and no broccoli!
