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 Winter's Tale.

This late Shakespeare play is a wonderful mix of family turmoil, sexual jealousy, vexed friendship, and mythic acts of redemption. A multi-generational drama that is ultimately festive and uplifting.

The reading will resume each Wednesday, from 3:30-4:30 p.m. live on Zoom.  The reading will be led by Pennoni Honors College Dean Paula Marantz Cohen, author of the forthcoming Learning Empathy from Shakespeare (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 a little laughter in our present moment.
