Author Michael Blanding
The investigative journalist and best-selling author will discuss his book In Shakespeare’s Shadow, winner of the International Book Award for Narrative Non-Fiction.

What if Shakespeare wrote Shakespeare, but someone else wrote him first? The book follows a renegade scholar’s quest to solve the mysteries behind the world’s greatest works of literature—leading him to the enigmatic Elizabethan courtier Sir Thomas North.

Michael Blanding is a Boston-based investigative journalist whose work has appeared in The New York Times, WIRED, Smithsonian, Slate, The Nation, The Boston Globe Magazine, and Boston. His previous book, The Map Thief (2014), was named a New York Times Bestseller and an NPR Book of the Year.
