Calling all historical fiction fans

Fragonard La Liseuse

This time for the The Historical Novel Society’s North American Conference, to be held in Schaumburg, Illinois, from Friday, June 12 through Sunday, June 14, 2009. This will be a unique occasion to meet readers, writers, editors, agents and historical fiction fans from all horizons over an entire week-end.

I will of course attend, with all the more trepidation that it will be my very first HNS Conference. Furthermore I will have the honor and pleasure of sitting on two panels:

Saturday, June 13: Historical Accuracy vs. Plot: A Debate on Balancing Fact and Fiction

Sunday, June 14: Query Letters That Worked

For a full schedule of events, see here. I look forward to meeting many online friends in the flesh.

See you there!

    I sent in my registration this week! I’m not attending any academic conferences in the spring, so I decided to put my ‘conference budget’ toward HNS. I’ve never been to a writing conference, so I am very excited. Excited too to meet you, Julianne, and others folks from the online crowd! –Sheramy

    How cool that you are getting to go to the HNS conference!

    I am hoping that someone will organise a HFO get together and that someone remembers to take photos!
