Last True Poets of the Sea | Words, Words, Words Book Club, August 5, 2021
We are excited to partner with the Folger Shakespeare Theatre for their Words, Words, Words Book Club in August 2021. We love that they are partnering with independent bookstores around the DMV region for the book selections each month!
On August 5th, Words, Words, Words will be reading Last True Poets of the Sea by Julia Drake. You can order your copy via the links below - hardcover or paperback (available to pre-order now for the June 15 release).
Join the Folger as we search the stacks for our favorite novels inspired by Shakespeare and the early modern era.
Held on the first Thursday of the month, this informal, virtual Book Club is free and open to all. Our picks range from historical fiction to adaptations of Shakespeare's plays and are sourced from a different local, independent bookstore partner each month.
To spark the discussion, Folger staff open each meeting with a brief presentation that provides historical context, trivia, and connects the book to relevant items from the Folger Collection. Participants are then broken into smaller groups for breakout discussions, moderated by a team of staff and volunteers.
