63. The Pull of History

Presented by The Vancouver Writers Fest

Sarah Dunant, Jennifer Robson, Linda Spalding
Moderator: Jared Bland

Reaching into history for material is often a compelling starting point for fiction writers. International bestseller Sarah Dunant has felt the insistent pull of Renaissance Italy for years. Her new novel, In the Name of the Family, brings back to life the passion and treachery of Lucrezia Borgia and Niccolo Machiavelli. Linda Spalding reached back to 1855 for her novel of Canadian abolitionists, a slave on the run and a family in ruins. And Jennifer Robson, inspired by the wartime experiences of her own  grandmother, captures the despair and triumph of war-torn London through the eyes of a young American journalist. No dust on this history.
