Rescheduled for January 27! Join a book club led by Chief Librarian Christine Catallo and inspired by our Special Collections exhibition How William Became Shakespeare: 400 Years of the First Folio.

Discuss the bestselling novel by Maggie O’Farrell, inspired by the sudden death of Shakespeare’s ten-year-old son Hamnet and his subsequent play about a young man named Hamlet crushed by grief. A meditation on fame, family and sorrow, the novel shines a unique, humanizing light on a pillar of literature.
