Shakespearean Celebrations at Mesa Public Library

Whether you’re planning to visit the First Folio at the University of Arizona in Tucson or not, we think you’ll love these programs honoring the bard!
She Surprised Shakespeare: Murder Mystery Event
Knowest thou who-dun-it?
William Shakespeare understood women. His plays bring to life girls falling in love, women disguising themselves as men and queens scheming for power. As an escape from all this excitement, the ladies can chill out at The Stratford Sanctuary for Heroines. No entry is allowed for any of Shakespeare's male characters, regardless of how rugged or romantic they might be. So how is it that one of them is in the garden - dead? That was definitely not in the script!
