Tidelines Book Festival – Mary Queen of Scots: Beyond the Myth
25 September @ 3:30 pm - 5:30 pm
Claire Hunter & Jennifer Morag Henderson
Daughters of the North follows The Earl of Bothwell’s first wife, Jean Gordon, through blood feuds, her disastrous union with Bothwell, the intrigues of Mary’s court and Jean’s lasting legacy to the Earldom of Sutherland. Embroidering Her Truth reveals how the captive Mary used her needlework to smuggle messages to her followers, placing her at the forefront of a new defiant women’s culture in which women rulers established alternative ways to claim their place on the political stage.
Tidelines brings these two intriguing books together to take a sideways look at the reign of Mary, Queen of Scots.
