Writing any kind of novel requires research - especially historical fiction. Every story has a setting, and the more detail the writer can supply, the easier it is to transport the reader to another time and place, and impart a blissful literary experience. But how much research is enough - and how much is too much?
The process of ferreting out details to support your story can also be a trap: a pursuit so painstaking and fascinating that a writer can lose track of the story. New York Times bestselling novelist Andrew Sean Greer will talk about research - how to go about it without letting it consume you - and how to incorporate it into your story. The seminar will conclude with a wine reception with the author.
