The Shakespeare Society is a monthly Shakespeare reading and discussion group. We meet on the third Tuesday of every month. 
We intend to read and discuss every single Shakespeare play in series-order, grouped in several series reflecting his tragedies, comedies, problem plays, romances, and histories. There is no preferred edition. The West End Neighborhood Library's adult services librarian will facilitate the discussion.

Series 1 will focus on Shakespeare's tragedies; the full reading list for Series 1 is as follows:

Dec. 18 | Antony and Cleopatra
Jan. 15 | Coriolanus
Feb. 19 | Hamlet
Mar. 19 | Julius Caesar
Apr. 16 | King Lear
