Shakespeare at 400: why?

15th October 2016 @ 6:30 pm - 7:30 pm

Join Dr Paul Edmondson from the Shakespeare Birthplace Trust for an evening of readings and conversation to celebrate 400 years of Shakespeare.

Paul Edmondson is Head of Research and Knowledge and Director of the Stratford-upon-Avon Poetry Festival for the Shakespeare Birthplace Trust. He is the author, co-author, and co-editor of many books and articles about Shakespeare, including, towards the end of last year, The Shakespeare Circle: An Alternative Biography (with Stanley Wells for Cambridge University Press), Shakespeare’s Creative Legacies (just out in The Arden Shakespeare series); and Finding Shakespeare’s New Place: an archaeological biography (July, Manchester University Press). His Shakespeare: Ideas in Profile is an overview of Shakespeare for the general reader, and a collection of his Shakespeare-related poetry has just been published, Destination Shakespeare (from the Misfit Press). He is Chair of the Hosking Houses Trust for women writers, a Trustee of the British Shakespeare Association, and a priest in the Church of England. He has lived and worked in Stratford-upon-Avon since 1995.
