Shakespeare’s work is alive and well, and his work continues to illuminate and inform who we are. The Dubuque Shakespeare Project acts as a focal point for celebrating the Bard’s work in the Tristate area.
In 2023, we celebrate the 400th anniversary of the publication of the First Folio, which is among the most influential books ever published.
Carnegie-Stout Public Library launches a monthly series in which participants will examine Shakespeare’s work in somewhat chronological order. The series will highlight common themes across plays and narrative poems and will chart the writer’s growth as a dramatist. As a starting point, each month’s discussion will place the work in the contexts of Shakespeare’s canon and the play’s relevance to our current human condition.
