Want to write The Great American (Historical) Novel? - come to the Merced Library
On Wednesday, November 18th at 7:00 p.m., the Merced Branch Library will present:

Spinning Facts into Fiction: Writing the Historical NovelĀ 

What is the process by which a historical novelist shapes fact into fiction, and where does the writer draw the line between truth and story? Patricia Bracewell discusses the historical characters and events behind her novels Shadow on the Crown and The Price of Blood and explains how history must inform the fiction even as the writer makes creative choices in order to serve the demands of drama.

We hope you can join us for this program, the November Merced Arts & Culture Salon.
