Fact Into Fiction with Andrea Barrett

March 10, 2015 @ 7:30 pm

| $5

The Whallonsburg Grange presents a Writers Lyceum Series entitled “Fact into Fiction.” The lectures will occur on Tuesdays at 7:30 p.m. throughout March.

The authors will be discussing the challenges and opportunities of writing about science, history and real people in novels and stories. Among other topics, they will talk about how they develop and research ideas; how science, real events and people constrain their writing; and the role of “themes” in fiction.

On March 10 explore the topic with Andrea Barrett. She is an award-winning author of many novels and stories, often using scientific discoveries and technology — from the tuberculosis cures (The Air We Breathe) to arctic exploration (The Voyage of the Narwhal), Andrea has researched and written about important scientific issues in her books.
