Back by popular demand, the Aspen Institute presents the Sharing Shakespeare Series, led and curated by Tom Buesch, PhD.  Exploring another round of William Shakespeare’s plays, volunteer moderators will lead participants through lively discussions dissecting the intriguing themes and characters in Shakespeare that still resonate today. Participants will read one play per month and share their insights and questions to reach a fuller understanding of the Bard’s works.

The 2020-2021 series will take place from 5:30-7:00 pm MT on October 12, November 16, December 7, January 25, February 22, March 15, April 19, May 10, and June 14.

Location: Zoom for Modules 1 & 2. Should we deem it safe we may return to socially distant gatherings for Module 3 on our Aspen Meadows Campus.

Fee: $135, includes all sessions and reading materials. Scholarships available. Registration is now closed. Please email katie.carlsen@aspeninstitute.org to be put on the wait list or for further information.
