Welcome September! Even though it is often still quite hot here in Texas in September, there is at least the possibility that it will start to feel like fall by the end of the month. And after a pretty brutal summer (still not as bad as 2011 though) I’m really ready for the fall. Oh, who are we kidding… I’m ALWAYS ready for fall!
One that I missed from August – Interpreting the Death of Edward VI: The Life and Mysterious Demise of the Last Tudor King by Kyra Kramer (who has previously written about the health of Henry VIII) came out at the end of August in the UK and will be out in the fall in the US.
And a book that I mentioned in the last round-up has been moved up to September for a US release – Arthur Plantagenet: Henry VIII’s Illegitimate Uncle by Sarah-Beth Watkins.
And in new releases, Emma J. Wells Heaven on Earth: The Lives and Legacies of the World’s Greatest Cathedrals will be released at the beginning of the month in the UK. I don’t have a US release date yet, but I’ll update the post (or add it in a future round-up) once I find out more. I hope it does come out soon in the US because I’d really like to buy this book and I don’t want to pay the postage to order from the UK! (Updated to add – the US release date ended up being at the end of September)
To celebrate the 500th anniversary of Anne Boleyn’s first recorded appearance at Court, her childhood home of Hever Castle is putting on the exhibition Becoming Anne: Connections, Culture, Court. The exhibition opened on March 4 and runs through November and is included with admission to the castle.
