Oregon Shakespeare Festival; Shakespeare Books & Antiques

The author opines that Oregon Shakespeare Festival’s claims that they are not boycotting Shakespeare Books & Antiques are false, and the boycott itself is an overreaction. While potentially offensive books might cause discomfort, they can be viewed as teaching tools and inspiration for discussions on freedom of expression.
