Grant Funded Programming Kicks off This Month

Shakespeare ConversationsExplore and dive into the poetic and legendary work of The Bard as part of The Shakespeare Conversations, which returns to County College of Morris (CCM) this month with an online program.

The conversation on Henry IV Part II – with a recap on Part I – takes place Thursday, December 9, at 7 p.m. on Zoom. Through this exploration, participants will delve into such topics as power, age and redemption. Attendees will receive a study guide and Zoom link prior to the one-hour discussion.

All are invited to join. Shakespeare experts and novices are welcome. No previous knowledge is needed. To take part in the free online program, email

The Shakespeare Conversations is made possible by a $10,028 grant from the New Jersey Council for the Humanities, a state partner of the National Endowment for the Humanities, through the American Rescue Plan Act.

In spring 2022, The Shakespeare Conversations will offer three events, including another close study of a Shakespeare work and two guest speakers.

The Shakespeare Conversations is overseen by Dr. Ann Patten, Dr. Yoonha Shin and Professor John Soltes.
