This is the first in a series of public events as part of Past Matters the University's first Festival of History.
Four leading historians and historical novelists come together to discuss how and why they write about history. An initial panel discussion will explore the differences between history and historical fiction, the importance of research, and the personal stories behind the books. This will be followed by four smaller “book group” sessions, where you can discuss the book of your choice with its author.
