Shapiro to discuss hot book March 24

London Times Literary Editor Andrew Holgate named James Shapiro’s April 2010 Simon & Schuster release Contested Will: Who Wrote Shakespeare one of a dozen hottest books of the year in his January 10, 2010 article, “The hottest books of the year” in the Sunday Times. Holgate said:

Shapiro has already proved, with 1599, that he has a remarkable ability to make Shakespeare scholarship both original and accessible. This outstanding piece of literary elucidation examines 200 years of heated argument over who really wrote Shakespeare’s plays — a debate that has involved everyone from Sigmund Freud to Orson Welles and Henry James.

Shapiro will discuss Contested Will: Who Wrote Shakespeare? at Shakespeare’s Globe in London at 6 p.m. on March 24. The event is announced on the Shakespeare’s Globe website, “James Shapiro, author of the bestselling and prizewinning book 1599, talks about Contested Will – his definitive investigation into who wrote Shakespeare’s plays.”

UPDATE Feb. 8, 12:46 p.m.: Andrew Holgate commented — Shapiro will also be appearing at the Sunday Times Oxford Literary Festival on Thursday, March 25 at 8pm. To book tickets, go to www.oxfordliteraryfestival.com
