Shakespeare and Authorship

Prof William Leahy  of Brunel University, London, sent us news of  the Shakespeare Week planned for 23 – 26 April. It will include Sir Mark Rylance presenting his play

I am Shakespeare featuring Bacon, Edward de Vere, Mary Sidney and of course Shakespeare.

Please note also the launch of the first ever MOOC (Massive Open Online Course) to be devoted to the Shakespeare Authorship Question. This has been created by the University of London and is completely free. One of our FBS members has completed the course and enjoyed it.
