Town Hall Reception/Lecture with Lois Leveen '90: "Juliet's Nurse," Shakespeare's Legacy
Meet Portland-based author Lois Leveen '90 and hear her speak on her new novel, "Juliet's Nurse."
The Harvard Club of Seattle and our partner Town Hall Seattle invite you to a private reception and lecture with author Lois Leveen '90.
Shakespeare's Romeo and Juliet, possibly literature's most famous example of star-crossed lovers, has been produced and redone hundreds of times since it was originally written. Now, Portland-based author Lois Leveen '90 (The Secrets of Mary Bowser) has reimagined one of the play's central characters in her novel Juliet's Nurse. In Lois's eyes, Angelica becomes a fully fleshed out character who has a personal story. In advance of the Seattle Public Library's exhibition of Shakespeare's First Folio, Lois will shed new light on this timeless narrative, the power of a mother's love, and what we can all learn from studying Shakespeare's work today.
