Hello Everyone! I have been toying with the idea of a book club specifically aimed at Tudor era Ficton and non-fiction. I thought that we could post a poll each month to select a book to read and then set up a date to discuss it, in perhaps a chat room setting. (hopefully we could find an appropriate date and time that would accomodate everyone…if not we could also utilize the forum for our discussion as well!)
I was thinking we could start with either: Wolf Hall by
That's a great idea, Gina! I think I can sort out a special chat room for Book Club members and also a poll. Other new/newish releases in the Tudor world are:-
Eric Ives' Lady Jane Grey: A Tudor Mystery (just out and on its way to me!!)
1536: The Year that Changed Henry VIII by Suzannah Lipscombe
Elizabeth's Women by Tracy Borman
The King's Rose by Alisa Libby
The Virgin and the Crab by Robert Parry
However, I think the two you mentioned are great because Wolf Hall has just won the Booker Prize and obviously Alison Weir's book focuses on our Anne!

I love this idea! Book clubs are the intellectual salon of the 21st century. And I'm with Rochie here- \”Go with the flow\” sounds good. I just searched the titles mentioned here and most of them have not yet come in to my local library. I definitely want to read Wolf Hall and Lady in the Tower, so chances are I will just buy them, but the others I'm going to try to get from the library. Yay Tudor book club!
Ainsi sera, groigne qui groigne.
