Hag-Seed: The Tempest Retold

Hag-seed is part of the Hogarth Shakespeare Project, which blends old and new with contemporary re-tellings of Shakespearian classics. Structured as a play within a play, a modern-day revenge plot hatches around a production of The Tempest. Felix, who plays Prospero on stage, is the mastermind, using the production staged by felons as part of a prison literacy program to exact his revenge on someone who had wronged him years earlier.


What We're Reading: The Duchess War

The Duchess War

Wilhelmina Pursling is not all that she appears to be. In Victorian England, "Minnie" purposefully leads a subdued existence, living in a modest home with her two great- aunts and keeping to the outskirts of social gatherings. When incendiary pamphlets appear throughout the town, inciting workers to protest unfair working conditions, Minnie must find their author before the mystery casts suspicion on her own secrets. An awkward incident at her friend's gathering gains her the notice of the town's newest resident: Robert Blaisdell, the Duke of Clermont.
