Join the Patricia & Phillip Frost Art Museum’s at Florida International University for the closing reception for First Folio! The Book That Gave Us Shakespeare on tour from the Folger Shakespeare Library in Washington, DC. Thousands of guests have viewed the 1623 original edition of Shakespeare’s first published collection. Published just seven years after his death, William Shakespeare’s Comedies, Histories, & Tragedies — now known as the “First Folio” — saved for posterity 18 of Shakespeare’s 38 plays, including “The Tempest,” “Macbeth,” “Twelfth Night and As You Like It.” For a full listing of the remaining First Folio! events and programs visit visit folio.fiu.edu.
