    Tayler's Bio:
    My name is Tayler and I was an English major/biology minor at the College of St. Scholastica! I have lived in Duluth all of my life so I know all the best local restaurants and hiking trails. On campus, I was involved with The Cable, Bella Voce, the Northstar Reports, the McNair Scholars Program, Student Support Services, and the English & Arts Club. Off campus, I volunteered with Mentor Duluth and enjoy throwing theme parties with friends and family.

Shakespeare’s First Folio

Shakespeare is the word on campus this week! Today my Honors Shakespeare Class visited the Tweed Museum at the University of Minnesota Duluth to see Shakespeare’s First Folio. The First Folio is affectionately known as “The book that gave us Shakespeare”. Without it, 18 of Shakespeare’s plays could have been lost to time. The Folger Shakespeare Library, Cincinnati Museum Center, and the American Library Association have partnered up to take several copies of the First Folio on tour across the U.S.

Our tour guide shared a lot of cool information about the First Folio and the time period in which it was written. It was printed in 1623 and is composed of over thirty of his most famous plays. In addition to the First Folio, they had many other displays including photos of Shakespeare performances, costuming from the Guthrie Theater in the Twin Cities, paintings of Shakespeare and his characters, and models of performance theaters.

This was a really cool experience and has me more excited for all of the other upcoming Shakespeare events in the Duluth Community.
