Tom Hunter announces Ron Halstead's M4M program to be given at Oberon meeting, March 19

Dear Oberon,

The world of Shakespeare is all atwitter about the so-called Cobbe portrait (NYT report ) being in any way a rendering of the man Shakespeare.  In the mean time, our new member Robert Duha--let  us welcome him as a member if we haven't before--has contributed really good evidence as to what the noise is all about.

You will want to be at our meeting this coming Thursday evening, March 19, at the Farmington Library in our usual place, Room A to be in on the excitement.

As if that weren't enough, the main course will be Ron Halstead's presentation on Measure for Measure, an especially intriguing play. Ron usually throws great light on the subject, and any light he can throw on this play, one of the darker Shakespeare plays, will be welcome indeed.

After Ron, we will also be hashing out plans for the Shakespeare's UNbirthday meeting coming up fast now on April 23.  The UNbirthday is taking on a life of its own, and we need to make the most of it, especially in the light of plans by Stratford-upon-Avon to make it an international event every year. But this is only the latest challenge, and as we all know Oberon is up to any and all challenges.

See you Thursday,
Tom Hunter
Oberon Chair
