Historical Society of Princeton's Historical Fiction Book Club Begins September 20

Knowing about the past helps us make sense of the present, putting current affairs into important context. Get immersed in the world of a historical time and place, and then engage with a scholar to learn the "real" story. At meetings of the Historical Fiction Book Group, scholars participate in discussions of the fictional elements and the nonfictional local and regional context of selected books.

Discussions are free, and held at 7 PM in the historic barn at the Historical Society of Princeton's Updike Farmstead, 354 Quaker Road.

Sept. 20: Discussion of Colson Whitehead's critically acclaimed "The Underground Railroad" with Mekala Audain, professor of 19th century U.S. history and African-American history at The College of New Jersey.

Nov. 15: Discussion of "Burr" by Gore Vidal with Paul Clemens, professor of history at Rutgers University.

Co-sponsored with the Princeton Public Library, and presented with support from the National Endowment for the Humanities: Any views, findings, conclusions or recommendations expressed in this programming do not necessarily represent those of the National Endowment
