The Irish playwright, Oscar Wilde, was especially known for his witty control of and deft use of the English language, and nowhere does he demonstrate this facility with English better than in the play, The Importance of Being Earnest.  The title itself, with its pun on “earnest” and “Ernest,” with all its characters often very “earnest,” but not always or consistently truthful, gives a hint to the reader and viewer what craziness will ensue. 
Behind the Curtain: Bringing Hamlet to the Stage
If you’re planning to attend this summer’s Heart of America Shakespeare Festival presentation of Hamlet, the Library offers a number of opportunities to learn more about the play and the production: upcoming events at which you can hear from festival organizers, scholars, and cast members about what it takes to bring the tale of the infamous Danish prince to life onstage. All in conjunction with HASF’s 25th anniversary celebration.
Summer is here and that means summertime adventures including exploring nature trails, afternoons at the community pool, warm evenings at the ice cream shop, and the Library’s Youth Summer Reading Program!
