Juliet’s Answer: How one man found the true meaning of love in Verona by Glenn Dixon

Who hasn’t wondered about Romeo and Juliet, and wanted to travel to Italy to see where the story unfolded?

Well, Glenn takes a summer after teaching his English students Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet to visit Verona, and become one of Juliet’s secretaries, answering some of the thousands of letters that flood in every year. Along the way he ends up settling his own romantic question and discovers more behind the play.

I found this fascinating, peeping into English lessons with students who become invested in the story, and discovering fascinating facts behind the most famous love story of all time. And of course, what happens to Glenn and his own quest for romance….
