WRITING WORKSHOP: “BASED ON A TRUE STORY”
Paul FrenchAladin Farré

Sunday, March 17, 2:00 PM – 4:00 PM

How do writers bring the past alive? Is it OK to guess at a historical character’s motivations or put words into her mouth? When does creative non-fiction turn into historical fiction? In this workshop, participants will learn how to investigate and tell true stories in entertaining ways under the guidance of Paul French, author of a number of acclaimed books about China, including Midnight in Peking and City of Devils. French will also talk about researching family histories in China and using unexpected sources to get at the essence of an era.
