Upcoming Books, Exhibitions, and Events for August 2023

Welcome to August! Can the summer be over now, please? I’m tired of slowly roasting like I’m a rotisserie chicken or something….


We’ve got a few books that were previously released in the UK coming out in the US this month:

First up – Young Queens: Three Renaissance Women and the Price of Power about Catherine de’ Medici, Elisabeth de Valois and Mary, Queen of Scots by Leah Redmond Chang we released in May in the UK and will be out in mid-August in the US:

And Carol Ann Lloyd’s The Tudors By the Numbers, which was released last month in the UK, will be out at the end of August in the US:

And in new releases this month, Gareth Russell’s newest book, The Palace: From the Tudors to the Windsors, 500 Years of History at Hampton Court will be out on August 17 in the UK and at the end of the year in the US (I see a future Christmas present to myself!):

Continuing Exhibitions

The Tudors: Art and Majesty in Renaissance England is now out on the US west coast and opened at the Legion of Honor, part of the Fine Arts Museums of San Francisco. It opened there on June 24 and will close on September 24.

Hever Castle has a new exhibition that debuted when it reopened for the year on February 8 – Catherine & Anne: Queens, Rivals, Mothers. Admission to the exhibition is included with tickets to the castle. There is also a companion book available which can also be purchased from the online shop.
