Along with the John Hay Library, the JCB is presenting a public viewing of our own copy of Shakespeare's First Folio (it's even prettier). In addition to seeing the book that gave us Shakespeare, learn about its historical context from Rick Ring, Head Curator of the Watkinson Library at Trinity College, in his talk "The First Folio on the Global Stage: 23 books from around the world, all printed in 1623."
