Pop-up Book Club - Romeo and Juliet and Romeo and Juliet and Romeo and Juliet
By the end of October, two new productions of Shakespeare's iconic love story will have happened and we will have shown one of the classic film versions at the library:
- This year's new film version of Romeo and Juliet, written by Gosford Park's Julian Fellowes:
- The current production of Romeo and Juliet at the Folger Shakespeare Library;
- And 1936's Romeo and Juliet, starring Leslie Howard.
Come join a discussion of the star-crossed lovers. Come early and hear about Shakespeare-related apps, podcasts, and blogs at Bard 2.0.
