The Book of Will
By Lauren Gunderson

William Shakespeare is dead.  Bad Hamlet knock-offs and children’s acting troupes litter the stages of Elizabethan London.  And the King’s Men are running out of time.  Rooted in real events, The Book of Will is the witty and wonderful battle of how the Bard’s legacy came to be.  Sure to be loved by Shakespeare fans and skeptics alike.
