The Newberry Library and Chicago Shakespeare Theater invite three great American scholars from the world of Shakespeare to address three very different topics. The series will open with James Shapiro, distinguished author of several widely popular Shakespeare books, including 1599: A Year in the Life of William Shakespeare. Shapiro will speak on the tumultuous year of 1606 that launched Shakespeare’s great, late tragedies, including King Lear, the subject of his latest book. In addition to Shapiro’s talk, lecture-goers have the opportunity to explore the Newberry’s ongoing fall exhibition, Creating Shakespeare.
