"Shakespeare and Broccoli"
Presentation by author Deron Hicks
Growing up, Deron Hicks had no love for Shakespeare or broccoli. In fact, given the choice, he probably would have eaten a plate of broccoli before reading ANYTHING that the Bard wrote. In this presentation, Deron explains how he came to love both Shakespeare and brocolli.
