Jeffrey Todd Knight presents 'Shakespeare and the History of the Book' April 22 at The Seattle Public Library
Jeffrey Todd Knight will present a talk titled "Shakespeare and the (Very Short) History of the Book" from 2 p.m. to 3 p.m. Sunday, April 22 at The Seattle Public Library, Central Library, 1000 Fourth Ave., Level 4, Washington Mutual Foundation Meeting Room 1.
The program is free and open to the public. Registration is not required. Parking is available in the Central Library garage for $6 on weekends.
Knight will discuss how dramatically books have changed over time, focusing on Shakespeare, whose works today look nothing like they did in the first era of print.
Knight is an assistant professor of English at the University of Washington. He teaches courses on Shakespeare, textual studies and literary history. His upcoming book, "Bound to Read," studies book collecting practices and the formation of Renaissance literature.
This lecture is part of the 30th Annual Meeting of the Book Club of Washington, and is presented in partnership with the Book Club of Washington.
