Oberon celebrates Shakespeare's UN-birthday April 16, 2011

The Oberon Shakespeare Study Group will host
Shakespeare's UN-birthday celebration
2:30 p.m. Saturday, April 16
Laurel Park Place Mall
37700 West Six Mile Road, Livonia, MI 48152

Everyone is welcome and attendees will receive a slice of UN-birthday cake! The celebration will include a panel discussion of the Shakespeare authorship question by:
  • Oberon Chair R. Thomas Hunter, PhD,
  • Oberon founder and Shakespeare Oxford Society President Richard Joyrich,MD
  • Oberon Treasurer Thomas Townsend

Although the Shakespeare authorship question has puzzled Shakespeare lovers for centuries, the topic is intriguing new devotees because Roland Emmerich will release Anonymous -- a major motion picture about the Shakespeare authorship with Vanessa Redgrave, Joey Richardson, Rhys Ifans, and David Thewlis -- this fall.

The Oberon Shakespeare Study Group UN-birthday celebration is featured as part of the Michigan Spring Book Festival held April 15-17 from 10 a.m. until 9 p.m. Friday and Saturday and from noon until 5 p.m. on Sunday at Laurel Park Place.

The Oberon Shakespeare Study Group is a Michigan group dedicated to the study of the works of William Shakespeare with particular interest in the authorship question. We meet monthly at the Farmington Community Library.
