Hannah's Bookshelf with special guest Sara Read - 30/04/2016

About the show

Playing tracks by

Elvis Presley, Wham!, The Buggles, Lady Gaga, Starship .

My guest this week is the brilliant Sara Read.

Sara has been working on seventeenth-century women’s lives for ten years. She was awarded a PhD from Loughborough University in 2010 for her work on women’s reproductive health (including menstruation, pregnancy, miscarriage). She works as a lecturer in English at the same university.

Widely published in academic works, Maids, Wives, Widows: Exploring Early Modern Women’s Lives 1540-1740 is her first popular history book. It stems from her love of the era and her enthusiasm for the women she encountered in her academic work. She has articles on related topics in Discover Your Ancestors and History Today periodicals, and is a contributing editor on the popular blog, Early Modern Medicine.

I spoke to Sara about her work and her writing, and, of course, she shared her selections for Apocalypse Books.
