In little over a month and a half, one of the Shakespeare First Folios will go on display in the UNLV Libraries Special Collections reading room as part of the national tour of First Folio: The Book That Gave Us Shakespeare from the Folger Shakespeare Library in Washington D.C.  Accompanying it will be a number of interesting panels that will put the Folio into historical context, and provide information on the Bard himself, as well as the many theatrical productions of his works that have taken place over the years.

The University of Nevada, Las Vegas University Libraries was recently selected as Nevada’s host site for First Folio! The Book that Gave Us Shakespeare, on tour from the Folger Shakespeare Library, a national traveling exhibition of the Shakespeare First Folio, one of the world’s most treasured books. The First Folio exhibition will be open to the public September 1-29, 2016.

“The UNLV University Libraries is excited that Southern Nevada will be able to experience first-hand the wonder and rareness of the First Folio,” said Michelle Light, Director of Special Collections. “From Shakespeare aficionados to students studying the Bard’s plays for the first time, this exhibit is a rare opportunity for people in Nevada to see one of the most influential books in history.”
