Upcoming Books, Exhibitions, and Events for September 2023

Is it autumn yet? Almost! Not that it will actually feel like it here in Texas until late October (probably… if we’re lucky)


We have a few books that were previously released in the UK that will be out in the US in September.

One that I missed a couple of months ago, Inside the Tudor Home: Daily Life in the Sixteenth Century by Bethan Watts, was released in the UK back in July and will be out in the US at the end of the month.

Next up, Children of the House of Cleves: Anna and Her Siblings by Heather R. Darsie, which came out in June in the UK, will be out on September 12 in the US.

Brigitte Webster’s Eating with the Tudors was released in July in the UK and will be out at the end of September in the US:

And in new releases this month:

John Guy and Julia Fox have a joint work Hunting the Falcon: Henry VIII, Anne Boleyn and the Marriage That Shook Europe out in the UK on September 14 and will be released in October in the US.

Kings & Queens: 1200 Years of English and British Monarchs by Iain Dale will also be out on September 14 in the UK and I don’t have a US release date yet, but I’ll keep an eye out!

Peter K. Andersson’s Fool: In Search of Henry VIII’s Closest Man about Will Somer is out on September 19 in both the UK and US. I have a review PDF of this one but I’m pretty sure there is no way I’ll have time to read it until at least winter break… But I’m looking forward to digging into it when I get a chance.

Heirs of Ambition: The Making of the Boleyns by Claire Martin will be out at the end of September in the UK and I don’t have a US release date for this one at the moment either. But I’ll keep it on my tracking spreadsheet and post when I find a US date.

And finally – September is a busy month for book releases! – How to Dress Like a Tudor by Judith Arnopp will be out at the end of September in the UK and the end of November in the US:

Continuing Exhibitions

Ending this month!

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.
