NICOLE GALLAND is an award-winning performer, screenwriter, and historical fiction writer. Her novels include I, Iago, a brilliant retelling of Shakespeare’s Othello. She co-founded and co-directs Shakespeare for the Masses, a project-based theatre on Martha’s Vineyard that has irreverently adapted more than 20 of Shakespeare’s plays by way of making the famous playwright more accessible to Bardophobes. Galland’s presentation will be part lecture, part performance in this free celebration of Shakespeare.
Certain books were “banned in Boston” at least as far back as 1651, when one William Pynchon wrote a book criticizing Puritanism.
