An afternoon with Shakespeare!

William Shakespeare died 400 years ago on April 23, 1616 and many people and organizations are celebrating his life this year in many ways. We celebrated it by going back in time and bringing him to 2016 so we could meet him and get to know him better.

We've got proof! The video below is from April 23, 2016 at the Tuckahoe Library. Take a look!

By the way, did you know that motorcycle policemen have a history of being heroic?  In fact, the Make-a-Wish Foundation was co-founded by an Arizona motorcycle policeman by the name of Frank Shankwitz. It all started when Officer Frank helped a seven year old boy named Chris become an honorary policeman and earn his motorcycle officer's wings.  That was over 30 years ago and since then thousands of wishes have been granted - and - it all started with the generosity of a few creative public servants - and one motorcycle policeman.

And where did I learn this fact? Check out Heroes for My Son, or the accompanying Heroes for My Daughter, each by Brad Meltzer.
