FBWEV and Shakespeare’s Birthday
On July 10th Villagers toured the National Portrait Gallery with Shakespeare and his work in mind. Villager Lorna Grenadier highlighted portraits and artifacts in the Gallery’s collection that were touched in some way by the Bard. Interesting facts included that President Lincoln loved Shakespeare as a poet and earlier settlers of the American West attended the theater as a matter of course. All were impressed at the role Shakespeare played in the development of our country.
