Shakespeare’s Books

Bendigo Writers Festival

Event Date:

Author / Presenters: 
Stuart Kells, Dianne Dempsey

There are people who are convinced Shakespeare was a literary conspiracy. One of the reasons they put forward is that it doesn't make sense that there is absolutely no trace of the library someone who wrote those plays must have owned. Stuart Kells knows about book collecting, but even he couldn't have predicted the gloriously intricate paths his sleuthing would take him down. He talks to Di Dempsey about whether we'll ever know what actually happened to Shakespeare's elusive library.
