Announcing Wolf Hall on PBS & Huge Giveaway

I am so excited about this news and want to make sure that all of you know the details! Masterpiece on PBS will air a six-hour miniseries adapted from Hilary Mantel's WOLF HALL and its sequel, BRING UP THE BODIES. MASTERPIECE brings both works to life in Wolf Hall, airing on Sundays, April 5 to May 10, 2015 at 10 p.m. ET on PBS.

I have been wanting to read both of these books for years, and this miniseries is finally giving me the push I needed. I actually started WOLF HALL today in preparation for the first show this Sunday evening. Make sure you set your DVRs now for Sundays at 10 p.m. ET on PBS!

Wolf Hall stars Emmy and Golden Globe Award-winner Damian Lewis (Homeland) and Tony Award-winner Mark Rylance (Twelfth Night) and shines a spotlight on Thomas Cromwell's involvement in King Henry VIII's marriage to and divorce from Anne Boleyn.

Check out www.pbs.org/wolfhall for more information.

To celebrate the new PBS series Wolf Hall, I have copies of the books that started it all for five lucky readers! To enter, just fill out the form below before Sunday, May 3rd at 11:59 p.m. I will randomly select and notify the winners the following day. This contest is open to those of you with U.S. addresses only. Good luck!

I hope I win! I tried reading it a few years ago and had a hard time with it...then I donated the book. I want to give it another try though! :)

As I live in the UK Wolf Hall has already aired and finished over here but I will say that it is brilliant! It's much darker in feel than The White Queen was, for example, and Mark Rylance is astonishing as Cromwell. Damien Lewis isn't on screen enough as King Henry for my liking but then again this isn't Henry's story, it's all Cromwell and it's very refreshing! I loved it and I hope you'll enjoy it over there too!
