“Shakespeare Revealed” at the Ocean County Library

June 25, 2018

TOMS RIVER – In keeping with the Toms River Shakespeare Festival’s “Toms-upon-Thames” theme this summer, the Toms River Branch of the Ocean County Library will host writer Christy A. Schmidt, 6:30 p.m. Wednesday, July 25.

The program, “Shakespeare Revealed,” will address the question of whether Shakespeare truly wrote the works credited to him. Schmidt will explore authorship theories along with other mysteries in art and literature. She will also sign copies of her novel, “Treasure,” a modern adaptation of Shakespeare’s “The Tempest,” on which this program is based.

Schmidt is a resident of Barnegat. She is a photographer, artist, professor, attorney, coach and entrepreneur. She has penned numerous works that cross genres: fantasy, horror, historical fiction and thrillers.

The Toms River Branch is located at 101 Washington St. The program is free and open to the public but registration is required. To register, call 732-349-6200 or visit theoceancountylibrary.org/events.

Free parking is available daily after 5 p.m., in the top and middle levels of the Toms River parking garage located behind the library or anytime in the Ocean County parking garage on Hooper Avenue.
