Your Histories May Vary
Sunday, September 22, 2019  10:00 AM - 11:00 AM
Regular history books can be pretty boring for most people. But historical fiction can teach you about past events, fascinating people with different world views, and what are now uncommon ways of life while entertaining you. Is it true that most historical fiction these days is found in the Romance section? And then there is alternative histories wherein the author turns real history upon its head and takes us down another path. But even that requires a knowledge of REAL history to then manipulate those facts into fiction.
