Although William Shakespeare was born 450 years ago tomorrow (his birthday is thought to have been April 23), his work has never been more popular than it is now. The writer of plays and sonnets is recognized by many festivals in the United States that feature live performances, including Omaha's Shakespeare on the Green.

Talk like Shakespeare in Omaha tomorrow for the Bard's birthday, and you can get free products from participating merchants. Enter a sonnet in this local contest.

See this article posted at the "Talk Like Shakespeare" website to help you read Shakespeare before the 2014 Nebraska Shakespeare plays.

The current issue of New Scientist magazine has three articles (six pages) about the science that can be seen in Shakespeare, including "Shakespeare: poet, playwright, scientist" by Dan Falk, author of a new book about the science of Shakespeare. See previews of these three articles here.
