CPL Free Workshop: Writing Historical Fiction w/ Paterson Joseph (In Person)

Paterson Johnson

Join Paterson Joseph, author of the acclaimed novel The Secret Diaries of Charles Ignatius Sancho, for a two-part workshop on the art and craft of writing historical fiction. This hybrid workshop will start with one virtual session and a second session in-person with the author at the Main Cleveland Public Library's Louis Stokes Wing.

Mr. Joseph will discuss finding inspiration in historical people and events, how the past can shed light on current social issues and provide practical tools for bringing the past to life on the page. He will also do an author Q&A after the workshop.

This workshop is for writers of all levels.
