POP-UP SHAKESPEARE Launches at Shakespeare Birthplace in Stratford-upon-Avon!

On September 24, 2017, the Shakespeare Birthplace Trust in Stratford-upon-Avon hosted illustrator Jennie Maizels and co-author Austin Tichenor at a special event celebrating the publication of their new book Pop-Up Shakespeare.

Jennie created wonderful props and costumes for Austin to wear while reading excerpts, and for kids in the audience to wear while re-enacting moments from Shakespeare’s plays, like this young man who was transformed into Bottom from A Midsummer Night’s Dream, and this adorably terrifying bear from A Winter’s Tale.
