Hear from three authors who took real-life inspiration and ran with it, blurring the line between fact and fiction or giving new life to historical events and people: Jami Attenberg explores the life of Saint Mazie in Jazz Age New York City; Benjamin Percy offers a post-apocalyptic dystopian retelling of the Lewis and Clark journey in The Dead Lands’; and Glenn Taylor’s A Hanging at Cinder Bottom starts with an historical execution in West Virginia. Moderated by Scott Cheshire (High as the Horses’ Bridles).
