Brookdale Community College's Shakespeare Read-A-Thon

Brookdale Community College will celebrate the 454th birthday of William Shakespeare with the eighth annual Shakespeare Read-A-Thon.

Individuals of all ages are invited to dress as their favorite Shakespearean character, read from their favorite plays and sonnets and join friends, family and community members in a collaborative reading from the Bard’s works.

This year’s program will honor retiring Brookdale humanities dean Carl Calendar, an esteemed faculty member and administrator who has served at the college since 1970.  

“This annual celebration is designed to encourage students and community members to conquer their apprehension over Shakespeare’s language and find the fun in the Bard’s works,” said Brookdale English professor James Cody. “In that spirit, we are happy to focus this year on the favorite moments and scenes of one of our biggest resident Shakespeare experts and fans, the beloved Carl Calendar.”

Refreshments will be served.
