The Book of Will

By Lauren Gunderson

Directed by Karen Lund

An unforgettable true story! In an act of undying devotion, Shakespeare's best friends race to do the impossible: Publish every play he wrote. This irreverent, witty, and surprisingly modern tale celebrates friendship, found family, and an unselfish act that changed the world forever. From the author of Silent Sky  and the Christmas at Pemberley  series.
