      Casa Up Close: Shakespeare 101

      Did you know that William Shakespeare acted in many of his own plays, or that he coined over 1,500 words in the English language? Learn all about Shakespeare’s life and legacy with expert Lori Anne Ferrell (John D. and Lillian Maguire Distinguished Professor in the Humanities and Chair of the English Department at Claremont University) before watching Shakespeare’s “The Tempest” play at Casa Romantica in June. This lecture is appropriate for all ages.
