REFRESHING READS

The Taming of the Shrew by William Shakespeare (No Fear Shakespeare)

Baptista Minola insists that if his youngest daughter is to be married, her older sister Katherine must be married first. But Katherine has a temper so notorious that it is thought that no man would ever wish to marry her. When Petruchio comes to town in search of a wife, he marries Katherine for her money, certain he can “tame” her.

“This summer ‘It’s Showtime’ at the Oak Lawn Public Library and what author‘s work has been interpreted/adapted more times on screen and stage than William Shakespeare? So we will explore one of his comedies! For those of us who haven’t had to read “The Bard” since high school, we are going to have copies of the No Fear Shakespeare version which has the original text and a modern language translation of the work available, as well as copies of the play in its original form. In July, after we have become experts on the work, we are going to read Anne Tyler’s modern retelling, Vinegar Girl, set in modern-day Baltimore. Join us as we discuss this 400-year-old work and what we can learn about it in today’s world!” --Shannon
