This year the Arroyo Book Club will continue our tradition of reading one of the Bard’s plays for our December meeting. This time around we will be reading Twelfth Night. Twelfth Night is one of Shakespeare’s romantic comedies. It is centered around twins Viola and Sebastian and some serious mistaken identity complicating their respective loves.
We have plenty of copies of the “No Fear” edition of the play here at the library if you’d like to swing by for a physical edition. The No Fear edition is the one that has the current English on one side and the original text on the other. If you prefer an e-version you can find it via overdrive/libby here.
If you would like to watch Twelfth Night performed you can find two options on the Kanopy platform. The first is Trevor Nunn’s 1996 version (https://lapl.kanopy.com/video/twelfth-night-0). The second is from a 1980 BBC series noted for their fidelity to the text (https://lapl.kanopy.com/video/twelfth-night)
Finally…. A reminder that this year our December book club meeting will fall on the third Saturday of the month, specifically, we will be meeting on 12/18 at 3:00 to share our thoughts. Email email@example.com if you are interested in attending and we’ll add you to the program link list.
