    A Reunion of Ghosts: When Historical Truth Meets Literary Truth

    It’s been said that fiction is a way of telling the truth by lying. Judith Claire Mitchell will discuss the way historical novels, including her own, blend an author’s inventions with history’s facts to examine profound human truths while also telling an engaging story. Judy’s talk will be geared to all book lovers, but it may be of particular interest to anyone thinking about using real events (including family stories) as the basis for a foray into fiction.
