Barry Edelstein's New Book, BARDISMS

Barry Edelstein, a terrific director and longtime friend to NYTE, has just written a new book. It's called BARDISMS: Shakespeare for All Occasions. According to the official blurb:
Barry Edelstein, a noted scholar and director of Shakespeare, gathers together Shakespearean gems for life's momentous events as well as the more personal, trying, or intimate moments. Organized by occasion and presented with lively and accessible background material, BARDISMS shows how to weave the Bard's musings into any simple and elegant speech.

Barry heads up the Shakespeare Lab at the Public Theater. He'll be talking about the new book and about his work at the Public in an upcoming event at Drama Book Shop. It's on Tuesday, April 14 at 6pm. Details are available here. The event is free!

Here's more information about the book.
