Historical Fiction — Corinne Brown Lecture

Dear History Colleagues,

 I wanted to extend a personal invitation to you to attend the guest lecture Historical Fiction: The Frontier Between Imagination and Reality we are hosting on campus next week. Ms. Corinne Brown, a vivid, dynamic author and the editor of HaLapid (the journal of the Society for Crypto-Judaic Studies), will be speaking on Tuesday, November 5th, from 4:30 pm to 6 pm at the Kraemer Family Library’s 3rd Floor Apse.
 
We welcome you or any students to attend her lecture that will address the authorial process. Specifically, Corinne’s talk, Historical Fiction-The Frontier between Imagination and Reality, will explore how historical fact can open the door to writing fiction wherein larger themes can be explored for the reader’s benefit. The crypto-Jewish experience has provided Corinne a way to meld a European Holocaust family experience with the journey of the crypto-Jews to achieve a greater understanding of the human search for identity.
 
For your information, I’ve attached a short flyer here: Historical Fiction – Corinne Brown Lecture 5 Nov 2013
 
I hope that you can attend,
 
Roger Martinez
