Readers’ Corner: Happy Birthday to Shakespeare!

Saturday, April 23rd was William Shakespeare’s birthday. He would have been 452 years old this year. That’s quite a long time for someone to continue having an influence on our lives, and Shakespeare definitely has, from our language to our basic ideas about drama and literature.

You may be a die-hard Bardophile, or you may think he’s merely a torture device invented by English teachers. Either way, there’s no denying that authors continue to be influenced by Shakespeare’s life and works. So shake up your reading (so to speak) with something from this week’s featured booklist, Hints of the Bard: Teen Books Based on Shakespeare.

Hints of the Bard: Teen Books Influenced by Shakespeare

Happy Birthday to William Shakespeare, and Happy Reading to You!
