Event Description

The Pennoni Honors College would like to invite you to another Shakespeare Read-Aloud for all interested students, staff, faculty, parents, and friends of the Pennoni Honors College. We will be reading and dissecting Taming of the Shrew.

The reading will be led by Pennoni Honors College Dean Paula Marantz Cohen, author of the forthcoming Of Human Kindness: What Shakespeare Teaches Us About Empathy (Yale UP). 

Lucentio cannot court Bianca until her older sister Katherina marries. Join us for the comedic courtship of Petruchio and Katherina, who is determined to make an obedient wife of the shrewish and reluctant young woman.


The reading will resume each Wednesday, from 2-3 p.m. live on Zoom. Our aim is to have attendees engage with this great play in whatever capacity they choose. You can come to read or just to listen. There will be no pressure, no judgment, no grades  — just the chance to commune together over a great work of literature and provide a little laughter in our present moment.


Wednesdays, starting October 28 

2-3 p.m.
