Do you write, or plan to write, historical fiction? Do you want to know more about research techniques that will help you achieve authenticity in the details? This workshop is for writers.
Pamela Schoenewaldt, award-winning historical novelist and Knoxville resident, will discuss the importance of accurate research in writing and will collaborate with the library’s Reference librarians to provide research techniques for writers.
Schoenewaldt’s first novel, When We Were Strangers (HarperCollins, 2011), was a USA Today bestseller, a major book club pick, a Barnes and Noble Great Discovery, short-listed for the Langum Prize in American Historical Fiction, and has been translated into Polish, Dutch and Russian. Her second novel, Swimming in the Moon (HarperCollins, 2013), was also a nominee for the Langum Prize and has received many literary accolades. A third book, Under the Same Blue Sky, is due to for release in May 2015. Schoenewaldt’s books describe the immigrant experiences of the characters.
