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 The Tempest and discussing the play as we go along.

The Tempest  is a play about magic, love, betrayal and forgiveness. On an island near Italy, Prospero, the exiled Duke of Milan, creates a storm at sea which sets off a series of events including plots to murder, a budding romance and a family reunion. The reading will take place each Wednesday, from 4-5 p.m. live on Zoom. The reading will be led by Pennoni Honors College Dean Paula Marantz Cohen, author of  Of Human Kindness: What Shakespeare Teaches Us About Empathy (Yale UP).

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 some deep thought and a little laughter in our present moment.


Wednesdays, 4-5 p.m. EST
