Ed Pettit in ShakesBookClub, Shakespeare


The Shakespeare Book Club
at the Jenkintown Library.

Join us as we explore the works of William Shakespeare.  We discuss a different play every month.  Our June play is the greatest love story every written: Romeo and Juliet.  Read the play and come talk about it with fellow readers.  
With love's light wings did I o'er-perch these walls; For stony limits cannot hold love out, And what love can do that dares love attempt.
Leading the discussion will be Edward Pettit, a literary historian and writer who teaches at La Salle University and has also lectured widely on various literary topics.  Pettit is a member of the National Book Critics Circle, the Philly Liars Club and is the current president of the Oak Lane Shakespeare Club, an organization founded in 1908, dedicated to reading Shakespeare aloud.
