Shakespeare Book Club is back at Noah Webster Library in West Hartford

Geoffrey Sheehan, Capital Classics artistic associate

WEST HARTFORD — The Capital Classics Theatre Company is bringing the “Shakespeare Book Club” back to the Noah Webster Public Library in West Hartford for the sixth semester of its popular group discussion series with eight months of conversations about and readings from some of Shakespeare’s greatest works.

The theme for this year’s Shakespeare Book Club series is “Ponder & Perform.”

Each session will begin with a group discussion, followed by readings by Book Club participants from that month’s Shakespeare’s play.

Whether it’s your first Shakespeare play or you’ve been a fan of the Bard your whole life, all are welcome to join the Shakespeare Book Club conversations. Discussions are moderated by Geoffrey Sheehan, Capital Classics artistic associate and theatre professor at Housatonic Community College.

The Shakespeare Book Club discussions are free of charge and open to fans of all ages and levels of experience.

Sessions are held in the Library Meeting Room of the Noah Webster Library, 20 South Main Street in West Hartford, at 7 p.m. on the first Monday of each month.

No registration is needed to attend. You may bring your own covered beverage or quiet snack to the meeting room — and your Isham Garage parking ticket will even be validated in the Library Meeting Room before the discussion.
