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 Antony & Cleopatra.

Years after the assassination of Julius Caesar, Mark Antony, one of three rules of Rome, falls in love with Cleopatra, Queen of Egypt. When the empire is threatened, Antony is summoned back to Rome, where chaos, war, and grief ensues.
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.
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).
2-3 p.m.
