Welcome to our 2022-23 Season!

This will be our 3rd Season via Zoom (35th or so overall) and it’s wonderful to have international speakers and an international audience. Join us on October 15th at 11am PDT on Zoom. Our 1st event of the new season is traditionally a fundraiser as we no longer fundraise via snail mail. By using either the Event Link or our direct PayPal link, you can support this event or our whole season. No one will be turned away, so please email us for the link, if you would like to attend but do not wish to make a donation at this time.

Our first speaker is Peter Dawkins. Peter is a specialist in sacred architecture and a pioneer in the rediscovery of landscape temples and the Western geomantic tradition. He is the Founder-Director of the Zoence Academy and Elder of Gatekeeper Trust, dedicated to evolving an understanding, care and healing of man’s natural environment. He has written several books, including Francis Bacon: The Herald of the New Age. We are very excited to hear him talk about Francis Bacon with regard to the Shakespeare Authorship Question.

Our second speaker, Ros Barber is a writer, academic and speaker.  She is a senior lecturer in the English and Comparative Literature Department of Goldsmiths, University of London, since 2013, having previously taught Creative Writing for 12 years at the University of Sussex. She is a literary historian focused on the Early Modern period, in particular, the poet and dramatist Christopher Marlowe, and his social circle. Her debut novel The Marlowe Papers (2012) won the Desmond Elliott Prize.

Our third presenter, Rosemary O’Loughlin, is an actor and a Shakespeare lover. In 2022 she debuted her one woman show, “A Rose by Any Other Name” at Edinburgh Fringe. Rosemary is an Oxfordian and we are thrilled to have her share a live excerpt from her piece via Zoom. Her Instagram handle is @shakespearedevere. Her Twitter handle is @shakesmonologue.

We hope to see you there to discuss whether or not Elizabethan England was the world’s greatest Salon or the birthplace of a single, literary genius!
