Loved rereading this one! In this sequel to Pride & Prejudice, Mary is witty and suffers no fools. I love seeing her character's development. Jane, Lizzy and their husbands are still very much in love. Lydia is still the worst and Mary finds herself bucking under all of her sisters' expectations and assumptions. It's clever, engaging, and manages to add depth to the Bennet sisters' relationships. I would love to see this on stage!

Another excellent one woman play performed by the author and recorded before a live audience. There is something about her storytelling style that puts me in mind of Maya Angelou. I‘m looking forward to the final installment in this autobiographical series.

I highly recommend checking to see if your library carries the LA Theatre Works series. Cleveland has an excellent collection. Does listening to a play count as reading?

I can never get enough of this play and have taught it for years with my freshmen honors' students. As freshmen, they read Shakespeare's shortest play; as sophomores, they read HAMLET, his largest play (and magnum opus IMHO). I always thought of MACBETH as a precursor to HAMLET, and that's how I taught it. One of his darkest plays, and one perhaps to revisit during these turbulent times.

Always read this during the Puritanism unit with the juniors. Not the easiest play to read, but the kids ended up loving it. Then, I would show the 1992 movie starring be-still-my heart Daniel Day Lewis (who married Miller's daughter!) and Winona Ryder; you could hear a pin drop on the carpeting during the movie! Even though it's historically inaccurate, it is DEAD-ON accurate with what a true witchhunt is, both literally and metaphorically.
