Happy 450th Birthday, Shakespeare!

Shakespeare Bust 2014 by Katy Dickinson

Today is the traditional celebration of the birth and death of William Shakespeare – in fact, this is the Bard’s 450th Birthday! I am dedicating this, my 1,500th blog entry since I first wrote posted on 2 June 2005, to my favorite author: William Shakespeare.

I encourage you to spend today with the Bard:

Today is also the birthday of America’s Folger Shakespeare Library, that opened in Washington DC on April 23, 1932 and is home to the world’s largest and finest collection of Shakespeare materials.  Whether you loathe or adore Shakespeare, today is his big day!

On 3 May 2014, the St. Andrew’s Shakespeare Reading Group celebrated The Bard’s 450th birthday with a cake:
