The Folger Spotlight

What's On at the Folger

Resource Guide: ‘Station Eleven’ by Emily St. John Mandel

On August 6, 2020, Folger launched its new Virtual Book Club with a discussion of Emily St. John Mandel’s Station Eleven. To dig deeper into the themes discussed, or to inspire your own book club, we have pulled together a list of related Folger resources to aid you in your exploration. A post next week will look closely at the items that were shared from the Folger vault.

LISTEN to episodes of the Shakespeare Unlimited podcast

READ the Shakespeare plays that take center stage in the book

LEARN about plague and the arts in Shakespeare’s time

ENJOY more fiction from the Folger

Registration for September’s session on Julie Schumacher’s The Shakespeare Requirement opens Tuesday, August 11. We hope you make a plan to join us!
