While you are waiting for “Victoria”

Image of itemIn anticipation of Womens’ History Month here are few biographies you might have missed.

Queen Victoria always suffered from a rather stuffy, prudish reputation until Masterpiece Theater’s latest historical drama on Sunday nights. If you are enjoying the program, there is a new biography of her that will soon be on the shelves (click the book cover to place a hold).

While you are waiting there are other historical biographies of women ruler’s on our shelves to try:
