“We few! We happy few! We band of readers!”
Well, it may not be quite as inspiring as the actual words from Shakespeare’s “Band of Brothers” St Crispin’s Day speech, but I do hope you’ll join me on Shakespeare’s Birthday (and St. George’s Day), April 23, as a few friends and I don our medieval armor and “habiliments of war” to present a live performance of the famous soliloquy at three branches of the San Diego Public Library, including the glorious downtown central library branch.
This is intended to be a “pop up Shakespeare” performance, done almost like a “flashmob” event. So come along and cheer for Shakespeare as we bring a little touch of Henry V to:
Kensington Branch Library: 10 am;
Central Downtown Branch Library: 12 noon;
Mira Mesa Branch: 3 pm.
The performance is FREE to all library patrons, as part of the many festivities surrounding the upcoming First Folio celebration.
For all the details, go to the SD Public Library events page, and search through the scheduled happenings on April 23. (There’s a lot going on!)
