For the 25th year, Saint Anselm College will mark William Shakespeare's birthday on April 23 with a day of sonnet-reading and acting out scenes from his plays. The festivities, which run from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., bring together more than 115 faculty, staff, students, community members and returning alumni to recite the bard's most famous works.
English department professor Gary Bouchard began the tradition on April 25, 1989 with 75 Saint Anselm community members participating. This year the celebration will be in the Cushing Center due to the weather.
