Award-winning author and educator Robin Throne will lead a fiction workshop on October 28. Thanks to the support of the Regional Development Authority, we are able to offer this workshop at a discount to the community, and free to high school & college students! Here’s a complete description:
"Fiction authors such as Tolkien, Salinger, and J.K. Rowling created elaborate fictional family trees as they wrote their stories, but authentic genealogies can also be a creative tool for writing historical fiction, creative nonfiction, or family history. In this session, genealogy, specifically Ancestry.com, is explored as an avenue for historical and literary fictional character development and research. This session is for genealogists as well as writers of fiction, creative nonfiction, or life story."
