Upcoming Books and Events for May 2015


Starting out with a few books that were previously released in the UK and are now having their US release:

The Other Tudor Princess: Margaret Douglas, Henry VIII’s Niece and The Dublin King: The True Story of Lambert Simnel and the Princes in the Tower were released in January in the UK and are out May 1 in the US.

And Henry VIII’s Last Love: The Extraordinary Life of Katherine Willoughby, Lady in Waiting to the Tudors (US title: Henry VIII’s Last Love: The Life of Katherine Willoughby) was released in March in the UK and will be out May 19 in the US.

And the one new release for the month is Women’s Voices in Tudor Wills, 1485–1603 by Susan E. James. This looks like a fascinating study but unfortunately it is ‘academically priced’ so I’ll be waiting until the university library gets it. It will be released at the end of May in both the UK and US.

Continuing Events

After the successful run of the stage versions of Wolf Hall and Bring Up the Bodies by the Royal Shakespeare Company in the UK, the productions have moved to Broadway in the US and opened March 20, 2015 and will run through July 5, 2015. You can learn more about the Broadway run, including ticket information at wolfhallbroadway.com.
