Join us for this free event! Debra McArthur, author of A Voice for Kanzas
, will talk about her transition from writing about history to writing historical fiction.
"Making the transition from writing history to writing historical fiction was harder than I thought, but ultimately more fun than I ever imagined. I’ll share a little about the historical research, a little about gaining my confidence as a writer of fiction, and a little about my learning curve and writing process as I strove to find the right blend of history and fiction to satisfy both young readers and the gatekeepers (parents, teachers, librarians, and publishers) who make books available to them."
