Last fall, UNH Manchester partnered with the Currier Museum, UNH Durham, St. Anselm College, and the University of Massachusetts Lowell, in submitting a joint application to bring the traveling exhibit First Folio! The Book that Gave Us Shakespeare to New Hampshire, with the Currier Museum as the venue.

First Folio! The Book that Gave Us Shakespeare, is a national traveling exhibition of the Shakespeare First Folio, one of the world’s most treasured books. The Folger Shakespeare Library, in partnership with Cincinnati Museum Center and the American Library Association, is touring a First Folio of Shakespeare in 2016 to all 50 states, Washington, DC, and Puerto Rico.

The Folger Shakespeare Library recently announced that the Currier Museum has been selected as the host site for New Hampshire. The First Folio will be displayed at the Currier, with related events taking place at all of the participating institutions and, hopefully, at venues all around the state.

The traveling exhibit First Folio! The Book that Gave us Shakespeare coincides with the 400th anniversary of Shakespeare’s death in 1616. The First Folio, published in 1623, was officially titled Mr. William Shakespeares Comedies, Histories, & Tragedies, and contains 18 of Shakespeare’s 38 plays, including "The Tempest," "Macbeth," "Twelfth Night," and "As You Like It.”

Bringing the First Folio to the Currier is a wonderful opportunity for New Hampshire residents, students and scholars alike, to see firsthand the publication that made the argument for Shakespeare’s genius. A series of events--lectures, workshops, and other activities--will be planned to accompany the duration of the exhibit.

For more information about the First Folio exhibition, check out this story in the Washington Post.

You can also read an announcement on the Currier’s Facebook page.
