Shakespeare First Folio Event


Location: Hesburgh Library


Macbeth, Julius Caesar, Twelfth Night. These celebrated plays and 15 others by Shakespeare might very well have been lost to us today without the First Folio, the first collected edition of William Shakespeare’s plays. 

In celebration of the 400th anniversary of Shakespeare’s legacy, the Folger Shakespeare Library is launching a national tour of the First Folio—the University of Notre Dame has been selected as Indiana's only host site. Thanks to a partnership forged between Shakespeare at Notre Dame, Hesburgh Libraries Rare Books and Special Collections, and the Robinson Community Learning Center, you’ll have a rare opportunity to experience this historic and famous book first hand!
