Writers often look to the past to make sense of the present and use historical events as a way of examining contemporary life. So how do writers give overlooked stories a new life? How do they introduce and develop characters that are relevant to the modern-day reader?
Join Pamela Mulloy and Aimee Wall in conversation with Laura Rock Gaghan as they look back at history’s forgotten stories in their most recent works. This session will also look at how to find these stories, how to conduct research, and what we can learn when exploring the events of the past.
