First Edition Book Of Shakespeare Plays On Tour In Missoula

May 9, 2016

Barbara Koostra, director of the Montana Museum of Art and Culture, and Julie Biando Edwards, associate professor at the Mansfield Library, talk with MTPR's Michael Marsolek about an important piece of Shakespeare history coming to Missoula.

The First Folio, the book that was published in 1623 binding all of Shakespeare’s plays together, will be on display from May 9 - May 31. The First Folio was the book that brought us Shakespeare, including 18 plays that most likely would not have been found if this book had not been published.
