Yes, a little late again this month because the not-serious-but-annoying health issues have continued except this time it WAS Covid, but thankfully a mild-ish case. (Probably due to the fact that I had a booster a little less than three months ago.)
One release that I missed last month was Courting Scandal: The Rise and Fall of Jane Boleyn, Lady Rochford by James Taffe, which came out in early February in both the UK and US:
Joanne Paul’s The House of Dudley: A New History of Tudor England, which came out a year ago in the UK, is now finally out in the US on March 7.
Next up, Roland Hui’s Anne Boleyn – An Illustrated Life of Henry VIII’s Queen came out in late February in the UK and will be out in March in the US:
Nicholas Orme’s Tudor Children was also released in the late February in the UK and will be out in April the US. I’m always happy to see more work on topics like this!
2023 is the 400th anniversary of the publication of Shakespeare’s First Folio, so I wouldn’t be surprised if there are more books about it coming but this is the first one I’ve come across – Shakespeare’s Book: The Intertwined Lives Behind the First Folio by Chris Laoutaris, which will be out on March 30 in the UK. It will be released in the US in April with the slightly different title Shakespeare’s Book: The Story Behind the First Folio and the Making of Shakespeare
And finally, Amy Licence’s newest work The Sixteenth Century in 100 Women will be out in the UK at the end of March and in May in the US:
The Tudors: Art and Majesty in Renaissance England which was recently on display in New York has now moved to the Cleveland Museum of Art in Ohio. It opened on Februrary 26 and will run through May 14. If the exhibition continues to tour, I hope it makes its way down to Texas now that I finally have a reliable car to drive to Houston or Dallas if it goes to one of those cities.
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. (I just wish international shipping from the UK hadn’t gotten so ridiculously expensive!)
