Description: The After-Hours Readers group is composed of Agnes Scott alumnae and friends of all ages interested in casual discussion of great fiction and nonfiction.

Told through a series of letters, a British farm wife and a Danish museum curator strike up an odd relationship, beginning with her inquiry about an artifact at the museum, and ending with the two intimately involved in each other’s lives. Readings for March and May to be selected.

Shakespeare and the Folktale: An Anthology of Stories edited by Charlotte Artese
Discussion led by Charlotte Artese, professor and chair, department of English

Date: Wednesday, March 18
Time: 7 p.m.
Location: Room 161, Cathedral of St. Philip, 2744 Peachtree Road NW, Atlanta 30305
Cost: Free
Description: Join us for a book discussion of Shakespeare and the Folktale: An Anthology of Stories, which presents more than forty versions of folktales related to eight Shakespeare plays. These fascinating and diverse tales come from Europe, the Middle East, India, the Caribbean, and South America. Organized by play, each chapter includes a brief introduction discussing the intriguing connections between the play and the gathered folktales. Shakespeare and the Folktale can be read for the pure pleasure these lively tales give as much as for the insight into Shakespeare’s plays they provide. Professor Artese is especially interested in Shakespeare’s borrowings and lendings, how he adapted his sources and how later artists have adapted his work. Her interests also include gender and race in modern literature. Light refreshments will be served.
Register: By Monday, March 16 at or calling 404.471.6323.
