Lois Potter, Author of "The Life of William Shakespeare"

December 17, 2012 - 7:30 pm to 9:00 pm

The Haunted Bookshop
203 N Linn St.
Iowa City, IA

Lois Potter, author of the highly acclaimed "The Life of William Shakespeare: A Critical Biography" (Wiley-Blackwell, Second Edition May 2012), will speak about the problems of writing a biography of a figure at once so well known and so little documented -- and one with whom, at first sight, she seemed to have nothing in common. Her discussion of the creative process of writing biography and a sampling of her insights into Shakespeare as businessman and artistic collaborator will make this a fascinating evening.

This event is free and open to the public.
