    You’re absolutely right, Heather, Maia is wonderful to listen to – but am I missing her last name mentioned somewhere in the notes? Only I’d like to find the right recording on Goodreads, and if it’s not there I want to add it, andI’m not sure of the spelling. Many thanks (and I just emailed you and forgot this!)

      Maia’s last name is Daguerre.
      And she’s doing this exclusively for us. She’s a listener (and AWESOME) who we’ll get a chance to meet on the fall tour, so you’ll get to see some pix of her, too!

    Mel, I bought the Horrible Histories books when I was there for the last CraftLit tour! LOVE their stuff and so glad they’re doing videos, too! Thank you!

    I’ve noticed that both in this and in North and South, you brought up “Pride and Prejudice” characters as an example of what the characters in these books are NOT. And I am wondering why? At no point during North and South did any of the characters remind me of the Bennett’s or Darcy, and I wasn’t expecting to hear the comparison to Mrs. Bennett here — because, like you said, Mrs. Henry Dashwood is unlike Mrs. Bennett. So why the comparisons?

    I’m really excited to listen to this book!

    • Heather says:

      It’s an excellent question.
      I imagine it’s because CraftLit started there and in early days a lot of the emails I received about many of the books used P&P as a reference point. Maybe because it’s so widely read it’s a pretty safe bet that people know the basic story and characters.

      But usually I bring it up because I noticed when I was teaching that a lot of students come in with pre-conceived biases–“oh, THIS book is from THAT time period and therefore I know exactly what to expect and don’t really need to pay attention.”
      With most of the books on CraftLit, that hasn’t been true.

      And you, you lucky thing, clearly don’t have to fight against those preconceptions.
      🙂

    The beginning of your podcast reminds me of this from BBC’s Horrible Histories clip:
