Subject: A Request for Comedy
I have been invited to join in the birthday celebration of a Senior
Staff person of a world class Research Library next month. (Name
withheld to protect the aging.) As part of that celebration, the guests
have been asked for anecdotal pieces related to Shakespeare, Renaissance
and related research; songs, jokes, etc. Can you help me in my quest
for a few minutes material?
Anyone with material in the neighborhood of "An actor, a scholar and a
cultural materialist get into a plane crash. Who was spared?
Shakespeare," please send it to me. Any personal anecdotes about
research libraries in Washington, DC would be gratefully accepted.
Thanks in advance. Material can be emailed directly to me:
