Upcoming Books, Exhibitions, and Events for November 2017


This month we have a few books that were already released in the UK and are out in November in the US.

First up, Nathen Amin’s House of Beaufort: The Bastard Line that Captured the Crown is out on November 1 in the US after a summer release in the UK:

Next is Miranda Kaufmann’s Black Tudors, which was released last month in the UK and will be out on November 7 in the US:

And there are a couple of new releases coming out this month (again, first in the UK and months later in the US… at least in print – I’ve noticed that the Kindle versions are sometimes coming out at the same time as the initial print release overseas).

First is Elizabeth’s Rival: The Tumultuous Tale of Lettice Knollys, Countess of Leicester by Nicola Tallis which is due out on November 2 in the UK and next March in the US.

And finally, Amy Licence’s latest Tudor work, Anne Boleyn: Adultery, Heresy, Desire is out mid-month in the UK and will be released next April in the US with the title Anne Boleyn: Femme Fatale


The second of 2017’s BBC History Magazine’s History Weekends will be held on November 24 – 26 in York. Details on speakers and tickets are at the link.
