The following is a release from Mary Nohelty, President of the Burlington Historical Society:
David Kruh, historian and author, will tell the story of one man's search for the "real" author of the works attributed to William Shakespeare. How could William Shakespeare, a man who never sailed, have written with such accuracy about sailing in the tempest? Or how - without studying law - written with such insight about lawyers, courts and legal issues in plays such as Henry IV?
The answer, some say, is that he couldn't and didn't. In 1916 a Boston man went to court to prove that someone other than Shakespeare wrote all those great works.
Before you laugh...He won the case.
Hope to see you at what appears to be an interesting evening with David Kruh. The Historical Society always welcomes new members. The guest fee is only $2.00. Refreshments will be available after the program. We are a non-profit organization.
The meeting will be held at the Kelly-Murray Wing of the Human Services Center at 61 Center Street in Burlington on Thursday, September 6. Doors will be open at 6:30 p.m. and the program begins at 7:00 p.m.
