Researching The School of Night



In the Reading Room: Louis Bayard


While researching his Elizabethan historical-thriller, The School of Night, novelist Louis Bayard consulted Folger staff about the world of book collecting as well as aspects of life in early modern England. Among the primary historical sources he consulted: John Stow’s Annales of England, plays by Thomas Dekker, and important character Thomas Harriot’s own A Briefe and True Report of the New Found Land of Virginia.
