Shakespeare for Snowy Days with Tibby Tobey
Call today - there may still be an opening or two in this very popular class! Over the next two years we will read all Shakespeare's history plays, from Richard II to Richard III. Along the way we will concern ourselves with the people and the history (War of the Roses and the Hundred Year War) which form the context for these plays. We begin with Richard II, followed by Henry IV parts I and II, then Henry V. That's it for Winter 2009. If you need copies of any of these titles, we strongly suggest you buy the Folger editions. Get your orders into the Toadstool early. Any questions, please call Tibby Tobey at 525-9449. Sign up at the Library (525-4411) to join us. Remember to do this soon, as space is limited.
