Shakespeare scholar Regina Buccola will present on the works of playwrights Thomas Middleton & Thomas Dekker, who collaborated on a series of pamphlets when the plague closed the London theaters in 1603.  Their work focused not so much on the disease itself but on the behavior of the ruling classes in response to it.  Actors from The Shakespeare Project will read from the playwrights’ works.

About

The 1501 Ellinwood Street library building is the realization of a longheld dream of the library board, staff and community partners. Located in the heart of downtown Des Plaines, the four story, 82,000 square foot building represents the community's commitment to reading, lifelong learning, and a center for family activities. A grand central staircase and large windows provide a wealth of natural light and illuminate the building at night.
