Celebrate Shakespeare and National Poetry Month


William Shakespeare was baptized on April 26, 1564, and though we do not know the official date of his birth, many scholars argue that he was born on this day in 1564.  Celebrate his life and work, as well as National Poetry Month, by reading some of his most famous poems, including Venus and Adonis and his sonnets.

Check out more of his work by searching through our online catalog.

      Actually, Shakespeare was baptized on the 26th of April. No one knows his accurate birth date, but given the trend that most children of the time were baptized three days after birth, many historians recognize the 23rd as his date of birth.
