MONDAY, August 22nd at 7pm: THE LOST TUDOR PRINCESS (Selections)

Caledonia presents selections from Alison Weir's Biography of Lady Margaret Douglas.  

Come enjoy the reading, and then join the book discussion lead by Lorelei Junot on Wednesday, August 24th at 5:30pm over in the main library area at the Community Virtual Library. All are welcome.

Royal Tudor blood ran in her veins. Her mother was a queen, her father an earl, and she herself was the granddaughter, niece, cousin, and grandmother of monarchs. Lady Margaret Douglas, Countess of Lennox, was an important figure in Tudor England, yet today, while her contemporaries—Anne Boleyn, Mary, Queen of Scots, Elizabeth I—have achieved celebrity status, she is largely forgotten. 

The life of Margaret Douglas spans five reigns and provides many missing links between the Tudor and Stuart dynasties. Drawing on decades of research and myriad original sources—including many of Margaret’s surviving letters—Alison Weir brings this captivating character out of the shadows and presents a strong, capable woman who operated effectively and fearlessly at the very highest levels of power.
