This Sunday celebrates one of the greatest English writers, William Shakespeare. His talents included playwriting, acting & poetry, all of which have been celebrated by fans for hundreds of years. While birthdays were not recorded in the time of Shakespeare, April 23rd is regarded by some as the day of his birth and not April 26th, the day he was baptized.
