Shakespeare Livestream 2015

Ask me anything -- again! -- about Shakespeare!

We're back! Celebrate Shakespeare's birthday week by joining us -- live on the internet! -- for our second annual Shakespeare Livestream, featuring myself alongside Colleen Theisen.

Now is your chance to ask us anything! Ask me your burning questions about Shakespeare, and about being a Shakespeare scholar, and maybe even about my least favorite Shakespeare book. Ask Colleen about librarianship and teaching with these materials. We will also have a selection of historic, unusual, beautiful, and forged editions of Shakespeare's works from Special Collections which we'll be showing and telling stories about LIVE!

Tune in live April 22, 11am-1pm CST
[Central time in the USA is GMT -5:00]
