  4. We just got home from the Esolen lecture and it was outstanding. I can’t wait to share the audio (or video?) with my father-in-law. He’s going to wish he had gone! We left very inspired and encouraged. I’m also going to suggest to GVSU that they do a mafia-themed Shakespeare festival and invite Esolen as a guest performer. Hysterical, and yet compelling! Thank you!
