North by Shakespeare: A Virtual Evening with Michael Blanding

north by shakespeare michael blanding
Thursday, August 5, 2021 - 7:00pm

Join author Michael Blanding as he discusses his latest book North by Shakespeare: A Rogue Scholar's Quest for the Truth Behind the Bard's Work, which tells the story of self-taught scholar Dennis McCarthy’s quixotic quest to prove that many of Shakespeare's plays are based on earlier source plays written by the courtier and translator Sir Thomas North. The author traveled with McCarthy through England and Italy; in and out of foreign archives; and back in time to royal intrigues in Elizabeth's court culminating in this engaging book.
