Resource Guide: 'The Weird Sisters' by Eleanor Brown

On December 14, 2023 the Folger’s virtual book club continues with a discussion of The Weird Sisters by Eleanor Brown. To prepare for the discussion, we have pulled together a list of resources related to families in Shakespeare’s work and the Folger collection.


EXPLORE early modern family dynamics

LEARN more about how family history can be traced

LISTEN to related podcast episodes, including on Shakespeare’s own family relationships

TEST your knowledge of families in Shakespeare plays
