A few months ago, a public library rejected my free talk about William Shakespeare. The talk was based on my newly published book, Shakespeare Suppressed: The Uncensored Truth About Shakespeare and His Works (2011). It is a history book, filled with contemporary facts about Shakespeare with more than 600 footnotes.
Was my talk rejected because people are no longer interested in a man who wrote plays more than 400 years ago? No, that can’t be the case because people continue to attend Shakespeare festivals all over the United States. And new Shakespeare biographies are published every year and people are buying them. And Stratford-upon-Avon, the supposed birthplace of Shakespeare, is still the second or third most popular town visited by tourists in England. No, Shakespeare is as popular as he ever was.
