Podcast: Author of A Hundred Summers, Beatriz Williams

| No Comments
Beatriz Williams, Greenwich resident and author of A Hundred Summers, spoke on Tuesday, June 4 as part of AuthorsLive@GreenwichLibrary. Williams discussed why she chose to use the hurricane of '38 as the pivotal, defining event of the book, nearly a character itself. She also discussed how, in historical fiction, historical elements and facts should infuse rather than dominate the work. Otherwise they become a jarring distraction to the literary experience.
