Tom Townsend, who is a big fan of Fahle's has been working on this project for several months. 

"I have been communicating with one of the producers, Townsend said. "She said this is poetry month, would you be interested in having members of your group talk about poetry. I said yes. I told her about our UN-birthday party at the Laurel Park Place Mall , and said I hoped to be invited back on the show this fall before the movie Anonymous is released. I was asked to bring a sonnet or a poem."

New Anonymous film trailer posted on YouTube

A second film trailer for Roland Emmerich's film, Anonymous , was posted on YouTube August 5, 2011. Emmerich's historical thriller about the Shakespeare authorship controversy is scheduled for wide-release in the U.S. October 28, 2011. A preview will be screened on Sept. 7, 2011 in downtown Portland, Oregon as part of the Shakespeare Authorship Research Centre 's annual  conference September 6-9, 2011 .  Anonymous will also be featured at the Toronto International Film Festival to be held September 8-18, 2011. Emmerich's film has Stratfordians aflutter, fearing examination of the traditional attribution of Shakespeare's plays may damage the brand.
