Shakespeare painting

Who (or what) is Cymbeline? Find out in this class!

Our  beloved Prof. John Ehrstine returns with this year’s “Brush Up Your Shakespeare” class.

 Join the discussion of Shakespeare’s plays being performed at this year’s Oregon Shakespeare Festival in Ashland, including one fairly rare play Cymbeline, and three great favorites: King Lear, The Taming of the Shrew, and A Midsummer Night’s Dream.

The 8-class series is only $35, and books for the class are available for purchase.

Prof. Ehrstine’s classes are highly regarded and quite popular. Call the Library at 503-682-2744  or stop by the Circulation Desk to sign up today.
