As mentioned in earlier posts, Conor and I gave a talk at the Folger Shakespeare Library this past Tuesday, February 15th. We were invited by the Library to talk about our interpretation of the Bard’s characters and stories on our comic book series.
The Folger contains the world’s largest collection of Shakespeare’s printed works and contains an immense amount of resources and artifacts from Shakespeare’s time. It was a treat to visit the location – I myself found it really inspiring that so much effort was put together to catalogue his works.
Our talk went very well – you can access a review of the evening by writer comicsgirl.com’s Eden Miller at this link. It was great to talk to a crowd of comic and Shakespeare fans, evenly split. We then signed a number of books and sold out everything that evening.
Thanks to Joe Ross for serving as our moderator, to Garland Scott and Teri Cross Davis for helping to coordinate the event, and everyone at the Folger for making it a great event. In addition, thanks to Vanessa King, Lesley Pike and Pietro Filipponi for taking the photos below. We hope to have some video footage up sometime soon.
