Shakespeare Folio

This April, we’ll be commemorating the 400th anniversary of Shakespeare’s death with a special book display in Mortvedt Library. Thanks to a generous donation by Tom Riedlinger, PLU now owns not only a facsimile First Folio of Shakespeare’s works, but two first-edition supplementary volumes by Charlton Hinman, the scholar whose work informed the production of the facsimile. After their time on display, the new books will be available for use by students and faculty in a wide range of programs, including Theater, English, and Publishing and Printing Arts. We’re excited to unveil them soon!
