GIVEAWAY of Worlds Elsewhere: Journeys around Shakesepeare's Globe by Andrew Dickson

(Thank you to the publisher for providing me with a copy of this book!)
April 23rd, 2016 marks the 400th anniversary of Shakespeare's death. To celebrate the Bard's prolific catalogue of work, I will be giving away a copy of Andrew Dickson's latest book, Worlds Elsewhere: Journeys around Shakespeare's Globe. How exciting!

Described as a combination of cultural history and literary travelogue, this book is Dickson's exploration of  "how and why the world became fascinated with Shakespeare."  Using Shakespeare's fascination with the world as inspiration, Dickson traveled the globe looking for answers - he went to Mumbai, Berlin, and San Diego (to name a few).  His book shares with us the ways in which Shakespeare's works have been reinterpreted over the years; along with, how the Bard's works went global.  Talk about a must-read!  Any fan of Shakespeare will enjoy settling down with Dickson's book, a nice cuppa, and a long afternoon.  I know that I can't wait to learn more about the man who wrote some of my favorite plays (Hamlet, Romeo and Juliet).  Plus, how awesome is it that 400 years later, we are still obsessed with Shakespeare and his writings!?! I love it!!

Open to US residents only.  To enter, all you have to do is leave me a comment.  Don't forget to include your email address.  Good luck!!

I read Bill Bryson's book on Shakespeare and loved it. I think I might like books about Shakespeare more than the work Shakespeare actually wrote. GASP! Haha. Glad you liked it!!
