First Folio! The Book That Gave Us Shakespeare is a national travelling exhibition organized by the Folger Shakespeare Library in Washington, D.C. to commemorate the 400th anniversary of Shakespeare’s death.

The exhibition is produced in association with the American Library Association and Cincinnati Museum Center and is funded in part by a major grant from the National Endowment for the Humanities: Exploring the Human Endeavor and the generous support of Google.org, Lord Browne of Madingley, Vinton and Sigrid Cerf, the British Council, Stuart and Mimi Rose, Albert and Shirley Small and other generous donors.

First Folio, which was assembled in 1623, seven years after Shakespeare’s death, includes 36 of his plays—18 of which had never before been published. Without it, Julius Caesar, Macbeth, As You Like It, The Tempest and more could have been lost. The book will travel to all 50 states, Washington, D.C. and Puerto Rico. The exhibition, which also includes panels and digital content, exclusively features First Folios from the Folger Shakespeare Library in Washington, D.C., whose collection of 82 First Folios is the largest in the world.

Folger Shakespeare Library selected Drew as the sole exhibitor in New Jersey because of its renowned theatre program, wealth of Shakespeare courses and nexus with the Shakespeare Theatre of New Jersey, which is based on Drew’s 186-acre campus. The book will arrive in late September and be displayed from Oct. 6 through Oct. 30 on the first floor of Mead Hall, with a bevvy of daily programming around it.

First Folio! The Book that Gave Us Shakespeare appears courtesy of the Folger Shakespeare Library. Books in the Time of Shakespeare is supported in part by the Delmas Foundation.

Exhibit Hours: Tuesday to Friday 4-8 p.m. and weekends 12-8 p.m.

Group Tours: For information on tours for groups up to 60, such as from schools, contact hryan@drew.edu or 973-408-3702.

Widely recognized for bringing something new and different to morning television, Joe Scarborough and Mika Brzezinski have turned MSNBC’s Morning Joe into a powerhouse among Washington’s power players.

Prior to becoming a nationally known media force, Scarborough was elected to Congress in 1994, the first Republican to do so in Florida since 1872. He is the best-selling author of Rome Wasn’t Burnt in a Day, The Last Best Hope: Restoring Conservatism and America’s Promise and The Right Path: From Ike to Reagan, How Republicans Once Mastered Politics—And Can Again. He also writes a column for the Washington Post.

Before joining MSNBC, Brzezinski was a CBS News anchor and correspondent who frequently contributed to CBS Sunday Morning and 60 Minutes. She is the best-selling author of Obsessed: America’s Food Addiction—and My Own, Knowing Your Value: Women, Money, and Getting What You’re Worth (second edition to be released in September), Grow Your Value: Living and Working to Your Full Potential and All Things At Once.
