With William Deverell, Cathy Gudis, Judith Freeman, and Max Benavidez. Historians and writers will discuss the relationship of history and fiction to each other—as well as to “truth.” Many people consume history via fiction rather than non-fiction, because the former better fires our imaginations. Novelists concern themselves with “what it felt like”, while historians tend to focus on explaining what it meant. This panel of great writers from both camps will explore shared territory, fence jumping, and how conflating history with fiction creates problems, opportunities, and often, great reading. Moderator: Michele Zack (artcat)
