Please join professional storyteller Marilyn McPhie for Stories Shakespeare Stole, on May 9 at 1 p.m. at the Civic Center Library Foundation Room, 330 North Coast Hwy., inside the Oceanside Public Library.
The reading will include some old tales that inspired William Shakespeare to write his famous plays.
Shakespeare borrowed the basic plots, but his plays, the characters, the words and poetry are his own. That is what makes Shakespeare great– not the originality of his plots, but originality of his words. Stories Shakespeare Stole goes back to the older folklore sources of Shakespeare’s plays.
McPhie has a degree in English and French literature, and is the President of the Storytellers of San Diego, and a California State Liaison for the National Storytelling Network.
This free program is sponsored by the Friends of the Oceanside Public Library and is open to the public.
