York Literature Festival presents a Historical Fiction Panel with Sarah Maine, Pamela Hartshorne and Tim Murgatroyd
Three York-based writers discuss their work and the art of writing engaging historical fiction.
Sarah Maine was born in England but grew up partly in Canada, returning to the UK to study archaeology at university. She now works as a freelance researcher, lecturer and writer, combining an interest in the past with a love of travel and an outdoor life. Her latest novel Beyond the Wild Riveris a story of betrayal and murder set in the Scottish Borders and the wilderness of northern Canada.
All three authors will be reading from and discussing their latest work, as well as the process of writing historical fiction. They will be in discussion with historian Dr Angela Ranson from the York Literature Festival.
