WOODEN O SYMPOSIUM
Besides being a fascinating conference, this year's Wooden O Symposium will feature two very different speakers. Mya Gosling, the author/artist of Good Tickle Brain, the world's foremost and possibly only stick-figure Shakespeare web-comic, and someone who thinks Shakespeare is "super fun," will present the opening address. Heather Wolfe will present the keynote address. She is the curator of manuscripts at the Folger Shakespeare Library and has created an online database of all known references and allusions to Shakespeare and his works during his lifetime and shortly thereafter.
