Shakespeare novel presented Friday

By
March 22, 2011 |

Was the greatest writer in history a fraud? Joe Conrad thinks he has proof — the original, handwritten plays. The problem? The handwriting is not William Shakespeare’s and a ruthless collector has hired a relentless mercenary to retrieve the manuscripts. How far would you go to keep the Shakespeare papers safe?

These are questions raised in “First Folio,” a modern, fast-paced “literary” murder mystery written by Davis author Scott Evans. He’ll present the book at The Avid Reader, 617 Second St. in downtown Davis, at 7:30 p.m. Friday.

The novel takes readers on a modern treasure hunt from Swansea, Wales, to Baton Rouge, La., Berkeley, London and, of course, Stratford-upon-Avon. Evans researched Shakespeare for years, allowing him to weave historical facts into the fictional plot.

Wine and light refreshments will be served Friday. For more information, call (530) 902-0026.
