The Writers Circle Speakers Series: Monthly Workshops and Talks with Authors & Industry Professionals
JUNE 10TH, 2012
All workshops are on Sundays from 2:00-4:00 PM
"There is no frigate like a book," said Emily Dickinson, "To take us Lands away." Historical novels not only transport us, but fully immerse us in different epochs and geographies, inviting us experience lives our modern sensibilities can hardly imagine.
Authors Stephanie Cowell (Claude and Camille), Susanne Dunlap (In the Shadow of the Lamp), Michelle Cameron (The Fruit of Her Hands), and Judith Lindbergh (The Thrall’s Tale) will take you from medieval Paris to Elizabethan London, from Victorian Crimea to Viking Greenland and beyond. While sharing their their insights into writing and research, they will reveal what moves them to write about such different historical milieu. They will also offer participants a chance to play with their own ideas for imaginative historical journeys. Bring a notebook, pen or laptop and be ready to take your first literary steps into past glories.
