National Book Festival

When best-selling writer Eloisa James is not writing novels she is a Shakespeare professor. She thinks of it as having a double life. James’s novels have been published to great acclaim. A USA Today reviewer wrote of James’s first book that she found herself “devouring the book like a dieter with a Hershey bar.” The new James novel is called “The Ugly Duchess” (HarperCollins/Avon).
