Researching and Writing Historical Fiction

I’m delighted to share an event we’ve just added to our calendar: authors Adam Braver and Margot Livesey will be coming to Robbins at the end of November to discuss researching and writing historical fiction. In a conversational format, they will discuss their research, their approaches to writing, and the ethical considerations of writing historical fiction.

Margot Livesey (pictured above right) is the author of several novels, including The House on Fortune Street, Eva Moves the Furniture, and most recently The Flight of Gemma Hardy; some Arlington library-goers may remember her excellent book talk at the library this past summer. Adam Braver (pictured below left) is also the author of several novels, including November 22, 1963 and Misfit.

 This discussion of researching and writing is the perfect way to cap off National Novel Writing Month (NaNoWriMo). The Arlington libraries are proud to support those who are participating in NaNoWriMo here at the library.

We first learned about this program from the Massachusetts Center for the Book, and appreciate their help in coordinating this event. This event is free and open to the public.
