Welcome to Medievalish with Grace Hamman!

I’m the host of the Old Books with Grace podcast, as well as a writer, medievalist, and wife and mom. This is where I share what I’ve been up to lately, what I’ve been reading and enjoying, a monthly meditation that you won’t find elsewhere, and some medieval fun extras for the nerds over here.

A free subscription means that the monthly newsletter lands in your inbox on the twelfth of each month, with meditations on authors like Julian of Norwich, Henry Vaughan, delightfully obscure medieval lyrics, and sometimes contemporary writers like Madeleine L’Engle.

A paid subscription directly supports my writing, and includes access to the Medievalish Book Club! Anyone who subscribes has access to a book club, led by myself, Dr. Grace Hamman, mostly on medieval or early modern texts but occasionally expanding beyond that zone.

Twice a month, I upload a little video (with accompanying text) of myself briefly lecturing on a section of a book that we read together, and there will be discussion threads and conversations. It is basically a more informal, communal, far cheaper version of a university course on medieval and early modern literature! It is not fast-paced but invitational. You can read or watch the lectures at your own pace, or you can read with me and chat.
