Book Discussion with Judy Levin

Judy Levin moderates the discussion of VINEGAR GIRL by Anne Tyler. The fall discussion series kicks off with a commemoration of the 400th anniversary of Shakespeare's death. VINEGAR GIRL is a contemporary take on The Taming of the Shrew.

The moderator, Judy, makes the following suggestions: read “The Taming of the Shrew” by Shakespeare to understand what this modern interpretation is based upon. Strong suggestion to at least read a summary of the Shakespeare play online if not the entire play. http://www.sparknotes.com/shakespeare/shrew/

Enhancements: Watch the 1967 film starring Elizabeth Taylor and Richard Burton http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0061407/
