“Fun without Footnotes:” Reading and Writing History and Historical Fiction

ID : 83647   
« back to classes page
Readers of historical fiction like to be entertained and some may think that they are also being educated. The view that ‘you don’t have to be a historian’ to write historical fiction is often meant to reassure the writer, but questions and opinions about the truth and accuracy of the information served up by this genre continue to be raised. Should readers place higher trust in authors with advanced degrees in history or related disciplines to do both? Should the writer play fast and loose with history in service to the story? We will dig into these questions and ferret out the answers created by the ever popular dishing up of history and story.
