DroeshoutPortrait_FirstFolioFolger—webA traveling exhibition from the Folger Shakespeare Library, in partnership with the Cincinnati Museum Center and the American Library Association in commemoration of the 400th anniversary of Shakespeare’s death.

Shakespeare would probably have been lost to us without the First Folio. Published in 1623, the First Folio is the first collected edition of Shakespeare’s plays, and only 233 copies are known today. Next year, to mark the 400th anniversary of Shakespeare’s death, the Folger Shakespeare Library is sending a First Folio to every state in the United States, and the Ford Center and the University of Mississippi has been selected as the site for the state of Mississippi. Join us in 2016 in celebrating the greatest playwright of the English language with this exhibit from the world’s largest Shakespeare collection.
