Historical fiction appeals to readers of all ages. In this session we’ll discuss such ideas as how historical fiction has changed through the years, reflecting the mores of the present through the lens of the past; how historical fiction creates bridges between generations; how historical fiction differs from fact-based reportage, essay or narrative non-fiction. This is a live literary event open to the public in The Betsy’s B Bar, and featuring an official “tweeter” to share the event online. Tuesday night’s Literary Salon features authors Debra Dean, Patricia Engel and Christina Diaz Gonzalez, who will read a short selection from recent work, before opening the discussion to the audience. Food and beverages will be available for purchase.
