How They Did It: Biographical Fiction

June 23 @ 3:00 pm - 5:00 pm

Novelist Louisa Treger once called biographical fiction “the lie through with truth can emerge.” In the third of our “How They Did It” series, we’ll hear from four talented novelists who have blended fact with their fiction, with dazzling results. Novelist Jasmin Darznik, who has written biographical fiction about Iranian poet Forugh Farrokhzad and photographer Dorothea Lange, will moderate a wide-ranging conversation with novelists Karen Joy Fowler (author of the Booker longlisted Booth), Dawn Tripp (author of national bestseller Georgia and her latest novel, Jackie), and Gail Tsukiyama (author of Bright Star, about the Hollywood trailblazer Anna May Wong)
