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 Henry V.

After he assumes the throne of England, Henry V sets off on a mission to conquer France. We'll dive deep into this history play, exploring themes of power, patriotism, warfare, and moral compromises. 

The reading resumes each Tuesday, 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 a little laughter in our present moment.

Tuesdays, 4-5 p.m. Starting June 1.
