Folger Programs in Bloom Online This April




Folger Shakespeare Library: Advancing knowledge and the arts


Can you feel it? 

That sunshine breaking through the clouds?
That call to get out there and experience something new? 

We feel it at the Folger. That's why we have a slate of programs to help you break out of the winter doldrums.

Whether in-person or online, we have options to help you celebrate National Poetry Month, Shakespeare's Birthday, or the simple pleasure of spring.

Come join us!

Poet Vievee Frances responds to blockbuster exhibit at The Phillips Collection

Award-winning poet Vievee Francis reads new work in response to The Phillips Collection's once-in-a-lifetime exhibit on the world-renowned Spanish painter.





As we celebrate Shakespeare's Birthday, the Folger also celebrates an important milestone - we turn 90 years old this year! As a special way of celebrating and for a limited time only, you'll receive a copy of Foliomania!: Stories Behind Shakespeare's Most Important Book, the definitive account of the frenzy around collecting copies of the First Folio, when you make a gift of $90 or more to the Folger!
