Gary Mendoza, who also mentors students to compete in the annual Shakespeare Competition, will head to London for the program this summer thanks in part to the English Speaking Union of the United States [ESUUS], which provided the New Orleans chapter scholarship. Read more here.
We've had an event-filled and fun year! This was the international celebration of Shakespeare's 400th memorial year, and several of The English Speaking Union of New Orleans' programs revolved around this anniversary. In February, the Branch sponsored its annual, high school Shakespeare competition at Tulane and our regional winner went on to compete in New York in the Nationals.
The Branch hosted a program by Tulane University's English Department Head, Mike Kuczynski in May. He spoke about successfully bringing a touring First Folio copy to Tulane. In May, the Branch also hosted international author, Andrea Mays and she spoke about her current book, The Millionaire and the Bard.
