Shakespeare Book Club

"Shakespeare Out Loud!"

Capital Classics' “Shakespeare Book Club” returns to the Noah Webster Public Library in West Hartford for the fifth “semester” of its popular group discussion series with eight months of readings and conversations about some Shakespeare’s greatest works.

The theme for this year’s Book Club series is “Shakespeare Out Loud!” Over the course of the eight months, participants will choose their favorite passages from selected plays to share out loud with the group for closer examination of Shakespeare’s use of language in those moments of human thought, passion and action.

Whether it’s your first Shakespeare play or you’ve been a fan of the Bard your whole life, all are welcome to join the Shakespeare Book Club conversations. Discussions are moderated by Geoffrey Sheehan, Capital Classics artistic associate and theatre professor at Housatonic Community College.
