The Craft of Historical Fiction: A Conversation
Sunday, May 5, 2013
2:30 PM-4:30 PM
251 Benefit Street
Providence, RI 02903
Join four local historical fiction authors as they discuss their recent works, and explore the fine line between literature and history, creative expression and scholarly research, poetic license and factual accuracy.
Taylor Polites, author of Rebel Wife will moderate. Panelists include Adam Braver (Misfit), Ann Hood (The Obituary Writer), and Thomas Cobb (There Will be Blood in Their Eyes).
This event is presented by the HiFi (Historical Fiction) Collaborative, a monthly writing group in which participants critique each others' writings and explore the challenges of historical fiction writing.
The Craft of Historical Fiction: A Conversation is co-sponsored by the Providence Athenaeum and Providence Public Library. This event is made possible in part by a grant from the Rhode Island Council for the Humanities, an independent affiliate of the National Endowment for the Humanities.
