For our April Third Thursday, join us for a conversation with three writers about how they bring the past to life in their fiction and nonfiction.
A large part of what makes reading historical fiction and nonfiction so compelling is the opportunity to experience a different time and place. Whether we’re returning to the Victorian era, 1700s Scotland, the Salem Witch trials, Ancient Egypt, or a more recent time and place, it’s the writer’s job to make sure readers find themselves transported. But how do we accomplish this effectively? How do we accurately capture a time and place we’ve never been to before or that we can never return to again?
During this panel discussion, we’ll dive into what it takes to bring the past to life. We’ll discuss everything from research, dialogue, the details that make it all feel real, and more, guided by three writers – Sarah Bird, Kate Winkler Dawson, and David Wright Faladé – who each bring a unique perspective to the topic. This conversation will be moderated by WLT Program Director Sam Babiak.
