Join author Michael Blanding as he discusses his latest book North by Shakespeare: A Rogue Scholar's Quest for the Truth Behind the Bard's Work, which tells the story of self-taught scholar Dennis McCarthy’s quixotic quest to prove that many of Shakespeare's plays are based on earlier source plays written by the courtier and translator Sir Thomas North.

Even as scientists make astounding discoveries about the navigational and physiological feats that enable migratory birds to cross immense oceans or fly above the highest mountains, go weeks without sleep or remain in unbroken flight for months at a stretch, humans have brought many migrants to the brink. Based on his newest book A World on the Wing, author and researcher Scott Weidensaul takes you around the globe -- with researchers in the lab probing the limits of what migrating birds can do, to the shores of the Yellow Sea in China, the remote mountains of northeastern India where tribal villages saved the greatest gathering of falcons on the planet, and the Mediterranean, where activists and police battle bird poachers -- to learn how people are fighting to understand and save the world's great bird migrations.
Hosted by Wilmington Memorial Library in partnership with libraries in Andover, Billerica, Chelmsford, North Reading, and Tewksbury.
