West Hartford Library’s Shakespeare Book Club returns on Zoom

Geoffrey Sheehan, Capital Classics artistic associate and theatre professor at Housatonic Community College

WEST HARTFORD — The Capital Classics Theatre Company will focus on “power” for the seventh semester of its popular Shakespeare Book Club. All are welcome for this free, nine-month discussion series. The Noah Webster Library will determine whether events are held on Zoom or in person at their 20 South Main Street location in West Hartford according to an email from the Library.

The theme for this year’s Shakespeare Book Club series is “Shakespeare — A Passion for Power.” Each session will focus on specific Shakespeare characters with a passion for power: kings, queens, soldiers, senators, lovers, and more. Each session begins at 7 p.m. and will combine group discussions and readings by Book Club participants from that month’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 lively Shakespeare Book Club conversations. Discussions are moderated by Geoffrey Sheehan, Capital Classics artistic associate and theater professor at Housatonic Community College. Discussions are free of charge and open to fans of all ages and levels of experience.

Be sure to email info@capitalclassics.org or bard@westhartfordlibrary.org to be added to the Book Club invite list. That way, you can get all of the details on whether the event will be in person or on Zoom. Other details available at www.CapitalClassics.org or http://bit.ly/ShakespeareClub.

Sessions will either be held online on Zoom or 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.
