Reading Event 12: Fiction vs Non-Fiction? Really?

With Richard Van Camp, Jennifer Manuel, Craig Davidson, Endre Farkas, and C.S. Reardon.

October 16 | 9:30 – 10:45 a.m.  |  Fairmont Chateau Whistler | $15

It won’t exactly be arm-wrestling, but more like watching these two meta-genres go head-to-head in a lively pas de deux highlighting writing’s essential dichotomy. What drives a writer into either camp? When do you choose how to tell a particular story? How have these considerations shifted or blurred with the rise of creative / literary non-fiction and historical fiction? Panelists who work in one, the other, or both will discuss how they perceive the strengths and pitfalls of each when it comes to engaging readers. Audience members should come “armed” with their own questions.

Moderator: Leslie Anthony

Note: Due to a family emergency, Richard Van Camp will not be presenting at this session.
