Reading Group books are available from Left Bank Books in St. Louis, MO at a 20% discount.
The Magnificoes! are interested and interesting folks who gather once a month to talk plays, poems, criticism, history, and fiction! The group began in May of 2012 just in time for that year’s production of Othello #InTheGlen by Shakespeare Festival St. Louis. Our long-term goal is to read all of the plays in the canon (38 of them) while enjoying the many creative works written that illuminate, complicate, and build on them. By December, we’ll have read 28 of the plays; our plan is to finish the canon in 2020.
If you are interested in joining this group or have any other questions, please email Shane firstname.lastname@example.org
We usually meet the third Tuesday of every month.
