Still Time to Register: The Pasadena Shakespeare Authorship Conference, October 18 to 21

Edward deVere, 17th Earl of Oxford

The eighth annual joint authorship conference of the Shakespeare Fellowship and the Shakespeare Oxford Society will convene in Pasadena, California October 18-21, 2012 at the Courtyard Pasadena Old Town by Marriott. For special conference room rates call 888.236.2427 or reserve rooms on line at: laxot-courtyard-los-angeles-pasadena-old-down/

Having the conference in Southern California is a great opportunity for local SAR members (and non-members, too) to hear and mingle with many of the finest minds in the country to engage with the Authorship question. Speakers include, Professors A.J.(Tony) Pointon, Roger Stritmatter and Don Rubin, as well as  Katherine Chiljan, Bonner Cutting, John Hamill, Helen Gordon, Jennifer Newton, and Earl Showerman. Plus screenings of Lisa Wilson’s and Laura Wilson Mathias’ documentary film, “Last Will & Testament; and the debut of Cheryl Eagan-Donovan’s Controversy Films project, “Nothing is Truer than Truth”, based on Mark Anderson’s book, “Shakespeare by Another Name.”

We might point proudly to several esteemed speakers who hearken from the Roundtable itself: John Shahan, Lance Fogan, James Ulmer, Sylvia Holmes and of course Sabrina Feldman who has recently published the stirring, “The Apocryphal William Shakespeare, Book One of A ‘Third Way’ Shakespeare Authorship Scenario”

Huntington Library

Also, the trip to the Huntington Library is not to be missed. Scheduled from 1:00-2:00 on Thursday afternoon, October 18th, the staff of the Huntington will put on display a dozen or so rare books from its collection, described as “nothing short of extraordinary.” For more details about the conference program check out websites for the Shakespeare Fellowship:

“Tomorrow and tomorrow and tomorrow . . .”  is good drama”, but what you’ll want is a good seat. There’s still time to register. See you there.
