Upcoming Books and Exhibitions for November 2014


Catching up with books that have already been released in the UK or that I missed in October:

* Digging for Richard III: The Search for the Lost King was released back in April in the UK and will be out November 11 in the US.

* Amy Licence’s The Six Wives and Many Mistresses of Henry VIII: The Women’s Stories is officially listed as November 19 for release in the US, but I believe you can already get it on Kindle.

Two books that came out in October that I missed – and both sound like they would be good presents for friends and family who have been listening to your chatter about the Tudors for years and have finally started to express interest. 😉

* Gareth Russell’s An Illustrated Introduction to the Tudors came out mid-October in both the UK and US and I totally missed it in last month’s round-up.

* Everything You Ever Wanted to Know About the Tudors but were Afraid to Ask by Terry Breverton came out in October in the UK and will be out in December in the US in hardback, but is already available on Kindle.

And a few new books in November:

* A new biography of Elizabeth I entitled Elizabeth: Renaissance Prince by Lisa Hilton is due out November 13 in both the US and UK:

And finally, Bishop Richard Fox of Winchester: Architect of the Tudor Age by Clayton J. Drees is out later in November in the US and UK.

Continuing Exhibitions

* Treasures from the Royal Archives opened at Windsor Castle on May 17, 2014 and runs through January 25, 2015 and will feature some items from the Archives that have never been on display before.

* The Real Tudors: Kings and Queens Rediscovered display at the National Portrait Gallery opened September 12, 2014 and will run through March 1, 2015.


Upcoming Books and Exhibitions for November 2014 — 2 Comments

  1. Don’t overlook In Bed with Anne Boleyn, a surprisingly lubricious contribution to the Tudorfic canon by respected academic Lacey Baldwin Smith, who died last year (I guess this effort is posthumous and I can only speculate on who might have uncovered it among his papers and edited it, as the style if most unlike what you may have come to expect from the author of Henry VIII: The Mask of Royalty). Also, traumatic for any reader who cherishes sentimental and romanticized ideas about Anne.

  2. Thanks for mentioning that one Foose! I have to admit, I’ve pretty much given up on keeping up with the new fiction releases, unless someone emails me specifically about a new book. It’s impossible!
