Walkin’ with Will: Sonnets, Trails & Trees
FLAGSTAFF — Walkin’ with Will: Sonnets, Trails & Trees is an opportunity for participants to enjoy some sunshine while listening to or reading Shakespeare and strolling various trails on July 16. A curated map may be purchased of Flagstaff locations and sights. It will be paired with Shakespearean monologues and sonnets referencing flowers, botanics and other themes. Participants will then walk to enjoy Flagstaff in summer. Cost to participate ranges from $15 to $35. While exploring, participants will read and listen to the curated sonnets and monologues recorded by professional actors. When participants arrive at a location on the map, they can record a line from one of the monologues or poems onsite. If they record themselves at three locations, they will be eligible to win two-day passes to Lowell Observatory and a signed first-edition copy of “Walking Flagstaff” by George Breed. Participants will also receive 50% off any size gelato at the Sweet Shoppe during the event. Those who do not wish to travel to Flagstaff for the event may participate by finding three spots in any city that exemplify the spirit of Shakespeare in summer and make a recording to send to the organization.
