Bagwyn Books Official Launch and Book Signing

You are invited to the official launch of the ACMRS historical fiction imprint, Bagwyn Books, and a book signing event with the author of our first publication – author and medievalist, Sharan Newman!

ACMRS is extremely proud to announce the launch of its new imprint for historical medieval and Renaissance centered fiction – Bagwyn Books. For decades ACMRS has been known world-wide as the gold standard for publishing scholarly research for the academic community. Taking advantage of our immediate access to world-acclaimed scholars, scholars across all disciplines and our experience as an established publisher, Bagwyn Books was founded in 2011 and is solely dedicated to publishing well-researched, historically accurate fiction novels. Bagwyn’s first publication (now available) is from celebrated historical-mystery writer, Sharan Newman. Death Before Compline, is a collection of short stories that take us into the day to day reality of medieval religious and family life, as it was lived by a variety of people: nuns, noble people, scholars, courtiers, merchants, hermetic spinsters and children. Newman will also be featured at our Fearless Females program regarding women of the Crusades on January 9th.
