We touched a Folio…and we liked it! Join us for this rare behind-the-scenes glimpse of the largest collection of Shakespearean treasures in the world. Gail Paster, the Director of the Folger Shakespeare Library and Head of Reference Georgianna Ziegler take us on a guided tour and bust myths while showing off hundreds of years’ worth of cool Shakespeare tchotchkes. Featuring the only extant quarto of Titus Andronicus, Edwin Booth’s hair-bracelet, a special appearance by Scott Simon from National Public Radio, Cleopatra’s finely sculpted asp, and what we consider the holy grail of Shakespeare scholarship. Plus – click here for an online slideshow of everything we saw! (MP3. Length 26:40)
