HAMILTON ROOM, CENTRAL BRANCH, HAMILTON PUBLIC LIBRARY
How do we reach truth by means of made up stories?
When does embellishment go too far?
Jean Rae Baxter will talk about historical fiction and memoir, keeping in mind a quotation - “Truth may be stranger than fiction, but it needs a better editor”.
Jean Rae Baxter has written two short story collections and a murder mystery. A Hebrew translation of her stories was published in Israel in 2013. Her three young adult historical novels have won awards in Canada and the United States. A fourth, The White Oneida, has just been released in September.
