Upcoming Books and Events for July 2015


It shouldn’t be much of a surprise that I missed some releases last month (and a few months before!) so I’ll include those along with the new releases for July.

First up, Mary Tudor, England’s first Queen Regnant. Truth is the Daughter of Time by Gregory Slysz was released in the UK and the US back at the end of March.

Next up, Tracy Borman’s The Story of the Tower of London was released in April in the UK and will be out on July 7 in the US.

Ray Morris’ tale of the sinking of the Mary Rose entitled Out of the Blue was released on June 1 in both the US and UK.

Exploring English Castles by Edd Morris was released in the US back in April and is now out in the UK.

Although it’s technically before the Tudor period I wanted to mention The Middle Ages Unlocked: A Guide to Life in Medieval England 1050-1300 by Gillian Polack and Katrin Kania, which was released in early June in the UK and it will be out on August 19 in the US. Some of the content would certainly be useful for writing in any pre-Industrial Revolution era of English history, and, I’ll admit I wanted to include it because Gillian is an old friend. 🙂

Next up, prolific Tudor historian David Loades’ latest work The Seymours of Wolf Hall is out in the UK and will be released on August 19 in the US.

And finally, the 6th edition of Tudor Rebellions (part of the Seminar Studies line) by Anthony Fletcher and Diarmaid MacCulloch will be out on July 5 in the US and July 6 in the UK. I have several Tudor-era books from the Seminar Studies series (although not the one on rebellions – yet) and I’ve found them to be good compact references.

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.
