Housebound Unbound: Historical Fiction – You Had To Be There
April 30, 2020 , 8:00 pm to 9:00 pm
E.L. Doctorow wrote: “A historian will tell you what happened. A novelist will tell you what it was like to be there.” What obligations do the writers of historical novels to be faithful to the historical record? Is there actually a different story they’re trying to tell? And how complicated does that become when a book features real-life characters? Join Clayton (The Last Train to London), Scharer (The Age of Light) and George (The Paris Hours) as they discuss how each addressed these issues in their most recent novels.
