THE POST CARDS ARE NOW ON EXHIBIT
AT THE FISKE PUBLIC LIBRARY
The submissions are fabulous!
Stop into the Library to see them all and vote for your favorite.
Since the Children’s Workshop date/time has been changed to May 23rd (see below) the exhibition will be up until after it so the participants can view the post cards and vote on their favorite for the People’s Choice Award. Have you noticed, the Library is a happening place these days!
Some of the Shakespearean post card entries have been randomly chosen to post on Facebook and will be posted on this site later.
A majority of the cards were created by KP students and it is quite wonderful to view their creativity! They are truly mini-masterpieces. Congratulations and thank you everyone in the KP Community who created a post card and encouraged their creation.
The collection is stellar! Don’t miss this special exhibition at the Library.

Shakespeare came to town and community members enjoyed learning about The Bard at Dean College
Wrentham Reads participants enjoyed the following events:
William Shakespeare and Anne Hathaway came to Wrentham!
Shakespeare and his wife visited the Fiske Public Library. On Saturday. The Hampstead Players performed Shakespeare III. It was a great performance featuring excerpts from Shakespeare’s work followed by a Q&A. In an interactive moment members of the audience were recruited to perform the 3 sisters characters from Macbeth. Bravo! In between snippets of the Bard’s work, Will and Anne were portrayed as a typical Elizabethan couple eliciting squeals of delight from the audience. The show was geared for grades 4-12 and adults too. Funding was provided by the Sweatt Fund.
An Evening All About William Shakespeare
Wrentham Reads had a great kick off with Romeo and Juliet at Dean College theater on Thursday, February 28, 2013.
It was a wonderful way to get re-acquainted with Shakespeare and for those who are were new to the Bard, a nice introduction. The pre-talk with David Krasner, Dean of the Arts before the play was very informative and engaging. Mr. Krasner vividly described the theater and it’s patrons during the Elizabethan Era in England and related it to the contemporary theater-goers experience. The pre-talk was taped by Wrentham Community Cable so watch for it to be aired soon.
Details about these and other Wrentham Reads events and related activities happening around town are on a our Events page.
