Craft Discussion: Writing Southern Historical Fiction with Angela Jackson-Brown, Annette Saunooke Clapsaddle, and Michael A. Almond

About this Event

Listen as novelist and playwright Angela Jackson-Brown, author of When Stars Rain Down and novelist Annette Saunooke Clapsaddle, author of Even As We Breathe, discuss writing historical fiction with a southern twist. Michael A. Almond, author of The Tannery, will act as moderator. This session takes place in the Writer’s Room. A few topics that may be discussed: How do you research? What events were you inspired by, if any? How do you ensure you are presenting characters, setting, etc. realistically? How do you handle writing about tough subjects such as racism? What sort of effect(s)/impact(s) can historical fiction have on readers as compared to other genres? Be sure to visit the authors in the Signing Gallery (downstairs in Joseph-Beth Booksellers) to get books signed after this talk!
