As the year draws to a close and we reflect on the significant moments of 2014, one that stands out is Eric Rasmussen’s voyage from Reno to a library in France where he identified one of Shakespeare’s original folios last month.
Now, 233 of the 800 first folios have been found, and since no manuscripts by Shakespeare survive, these rare texts have helped preserve many of his plays.
Author and NPR Commentator Mary Sojourner will be at Sundance Books this Thursday and Friday, October 16th and 17th. She is reading from her new novel "29" at 6:30 on Thursday. On Friday at 6:00pm, she is the featured guest for Nevada Humanities October Salon. Events are free. Sundance is at 121 California Avenue. Details at www.sundancebookstore.com.
