Library Makes Merry for Shakespeare's Birthday

Posted: 03/20/2012
Get thee to Shakesfest, where teens and their teachers are invited to make merry for Shakespeare's birthday on Saturday, April 14, from 1 p.m. to 4:30 p.m. at the East Tennessee History Center.

Knox County Public Library is pleased to present an afternoon full of Elizabethan fun. Young adult author J.B. Cheaney, author of Shakespearean-themed books The Playmaker and The True Prince, will discuss her writing experience and sign books. Teens can also enjoy a presentation from Tom Parkhill, Artistic Director of the Tennessee Stage Company. The whole event is free and open to the public. Come and revel in such stuff that dreams are made on!

In its fourth year, Shakesfest has become a staple program for English and drama teachers all over East Tennessee. Don't miss this wonderful opportunity to share the Bard in a fun and accessible way. More information is available at
