Author / Presenters: 
Steven Conte, Steven Carroll, Julie Janson and Sopphie Masson

2pm - 3pm in the Capital Theatre
There are stories that need to be retold, and there are those that have only been part-told. When a novelist takes on a slice of history, and fills the gaps, what are the responsibilities to the facts, and to what we know actually happened? Does history still belong to the victors? Sophie Masson hosts Steven Carroll, Steven Conte and Julie Janson to talk about why there's such a passion for historical fiction and why these writers have written about real events.
