‘Classic’ love for Westport Valentines

Thursday is Valentine’s Day, and the Westport Public Library is helping to celebrate the occasion in “classic” style: Shakespeare … on LOVE!

From the sonnets to the mystical attractions of “The Tempest” to — inevitably — the star-crossed “Romeo and Juliet,” the Bard’s examinations and celebrations of love are timeless.

Join Emily Bryan, a Shakespearean scholar and eduction director of Shakespeare on the Sound, as she leads a discussion of some of the many great depictions of love — and, no doubt, loves lost — in the playwright’s memorable works.

It gets under way at noon, a lovely Valentine’s lunch break, in the library’s McManus Room. Check HERE for details.
