Dr. Julie Brown has been a professor at Clatsop Community College for 24 years. 

ASTORIA — Head to Fort George Brewery and catch a lecture from Clatsop Community College professor, Dr. Julie Brown, entitled “Shakespeare & Shipwrecks: What English Royal Navy Ships Can Teach Us about Shakespeare’s Plays” at 7 p.m. tonight, 1483 Duane St.

This is a free event. Food and beverage is available for purchase, though no purchase is necessary. Doors open at 6 p.m. Minors are welcome.

This summer, Brown studied Shakespeare at Cambridge University and then continued on a journey of climbing aboard shipwrecks in the name of literary research. Come learn from her endeavors. With Brown at the helm, this month’s Ales & Ideas lecture will reveal clues to solve a Shakespearean mystery: the true identity of a character who has baffled readers for 400 years.
