The First Folio has left Idaho…
Thank You all for a fantastic month of Folio Fun!
Boise State University is honored to host First Folio! The Book that Gave Us Shakespeare on tour from the Folger Shakespeare Library in Washington DC. The exhibit features an original First Folio – the first published collection of Shakespeare’s plays – printed in London in 1623.
First Folio! The Book That Gave Us Shakespeare will bring the First Folio to all 50 states, Washington, DC, and Puerto Rico. Visitors to First Folio! will come face to face with the original 1623 book, displayed open to Hamlet’s speech in which he debates whether “to be or not to be.” The locations include 23 museums, 20 universities, six public libraries, and three historical societies.
