Book Club

Theatre and book lovers rejoice!

STC has launched a new opportunity for our audiences to meet and discuss books that connect to the plays onstage. The variety of Book Club selections echo STC’s productions by having similar themes, stories and characters or by providing new contexts to the plays and their authors. Led by staff members from STC’s Education team, Book Club gatherings are comfortable, fun and promise great discussions. There is no commitment to join—come to one gathering or all of them.

Simon Godwin’s first season at the Shakespeare Theatre Company has allowed for an exciting roller-coaster of literature! Selected by public poll, these selections will provide thrilling topics for each session. Wine will be served at each event.

This is a free event, however registration is required. All Book Club meetings are in the Forum in Sidney Harman Hall.
