Fact Into Fiction with Kate Moses
March 24, 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 24 explore the topic with Kate Moses. The poet Sylvia Plath has been the subject of biographies, literary critiques, films and other formats, and was a prolific writer herself. Kate has taken this complex and very public figure into a novel, facing the challenge of re-imagining a well-known life and bringing her own perspective.
