Truthful Historical Fiction

Written by Francisca Goldsmith on Wednesday, July 27, 2016
No matter the genre, good fiction has the capacity to present truths more directly and accessibly than any other word-based communication. We tell and listen to stories for entertainment—yet, just as significant to us is that these entertainments reveal reality compactly and with memorable coherence. Week 13 gives us a pair of historical fiction novels that breathe life back into times past.

Week 3 and the voices of Harlem

Written by Michele Cobb on Monday, May 18, 2015

You're invited to meet the people of Harlem in the 1930's and 1940's, and one very particular young man who would, from there, speak to the world.  Take the opportunity to accept this week's invitation to Harlem through these voices.
