HAPPY 450TH BIRTHDAY WILLIAM SHAKESPEARE

If you didn't already know English lovers everywhere have been celebrating the birthday of one of history's best play writes Sir William Shakespeare. Shakespeare has brought us many wonderful and tragic plays such as, Othello, Macbeth, A Midsummer Nights Dream, and Hamlet.

I can say for one that I love his work and find that I draw upon them sometimes in my writing and even my teaching to show how his work is still relevant. I use it in my teaching to demonstrate that all the issues that we face today are issues that Shakespeare wrote about long before anyone.

So in honor of his birthday why not pick up one of his books and read to your hearts content.
