This year, Shakespeare fans the world over will be marking 450 years since the birth of the "Bard of Avon." Some may even plan a trip to visit the world's largest collection of materials by and about him. They won't find it in the U.K., but rather right here in D.C. We talk to the director of the Folger Shakespeare Library about the history of the institution, how they're marking this banner year and why the work of England's preeminent poet and playwright continues to resonate with modern American readers.
