    "Ken Ludwig's enthusiasm for Shakespeare in his lucid, accessible, and inspiring book How To Teach Your Children Shakespeare is a rare treat. You and your children will be transformed by the magic and mystery of Shakespeare and his stories in an instant. I highly recommend the book to all who have a love of language and history."

    -Sir Derek Jacobi, CBE

    William Shakespeare's plays are among the great bedrocks of Western civilization and contain the finest writing of the past 450 years. From Jane Austen to The Godfather, many of the best novels, plays, poetry, and films in the English language produced since Shakespeare's death in 1616 are heavily influenced by Shakespeare's stories, characters, language, and themes. In a sense, his works are a kind of Bible for the modern world, bringing us together intellectually and spiritually. Hamlet, Juliet, Macbeth, Ophelia, and a vast array of other singular Shakespearean characters have become the archetypes of our consciousness. In this workshop, acclaimed playwright Ken Ludwig (Lend Me a Tenor, Crazy for You, Moon Over Buffalo) provides the tools from his acclaimed book, How to Teach Your Children Shakespeare. Learn how to instill an understanding, and a love, of Shakespeare's works in your students (and your own children), while enjoying every minute of your time together along the way. http://
