Books at the Museum!

After a very busy week I was thrilled beyond everything that my book order from Mango arrived today! And by my book order, I mean quite literally my order of MY books. I'm so thrilled! What's more thrilling is that the Abbey Museum Gift Shop will be stocking my book, The Very Secret Sex Lives of Medieval Women in their shop very soon. As a special deal for shoppers supporting the museum, each book comes with the uncensored dust jacket, a book mark and a postcard!

This is particularly timely as I have a talk to give at the Abbey Museum of Art & Archaeology next Saturday the 27th of March on Medieval Feminine Hygiene, which should be a wonderful fundraiser!  Tickets are available here and 100% of the ticket goes to the museum! The talk includes a light afternoon tea.

As well as donating my time, I'm donating a book, two flavours of elderflower cordial and hand-dipped beeswax candles to the raffle.

It's been a while since I've been able to get up to the museum, so it'll be great to catch up with friends there!

This weekend, however is all about preparing- cutting and folding dust jackets, checking my notes and making sure the images for the talk are loaded onto a USB. All of those behind-the-scenes things.
