Episode Description

The Buzz 1: "It’s easier to write about a period you’ve lived through, but what do you do when everyone who lived during that time is long gone?…The obvious first place to start is with non-fiction books." (Kat Clay) The Buzz 2: "Historical nonfiction is a broad category that depicts historical, real-life events…literary nonfiction, narrative nonfiction, creative nonfiction overlap with historical nonfiction." (Masterclass staff) The Buzz 3: Historical fiction can be a tricky genre to master. If you haven't done your homework it won't feel authentic but…no one wants to read a novel that feels like a school history lesson… don’t chase accuracy too hard. (Hannah Kohler) The Buzz 4: Start with historical nonfiction. Poach bibliographies. Fall down the Google/Pinterest black hole, then dig yourself out. Read historical fiction…carefully…Get your (virtual) hands on memoirs and documents. (Lydia Kang) We’ll ask authors Brad Borkan, Ursula Wong, Sarah Smith and Sharon Yang for their take on “The Future of Historical Research and Technology: Reading The Past.”
