A new reading group is forming in Port Townsend. Sponsored by the Port Townsend Public Library, CHANGELING will meet monthly to read and discuss the plays of William Shakespeare.
"No one is ever the same after encountering Shakespeare," said co-founder Bob DeWeese, "so I thought the name was appropriate." DeWeese and Libby Palmer, the other co-founder of the group, are both retired teachers who share a strong belief in the therapeutic power of Shakespeare's brilliant language.
Changeling will meet monthly on the second and fourth Tuesday of the month, from 5:00pm to 7:00pm, in the Pink House meeting room. Readers will alternate roles scene by scene, "so that everyone gets a chance at the juicy parts," DeWeese said. The group will decide together about which plays to read, and everyone is welcome to join.
