 How does fiction help and hinder how we remember history? Is it possible to fictionalize history with the goal of making it compelling, yet still retain the integrity of the past? Dr. Danny M. Cohen, founder of Unsilence and Assistant Professor of Instruction at Northwestern University, explores these issues. This event is part of the One Book, Everybody Reads series. Funding provided by Friends of the Library. (This year's book - Mischling by Affinity Konar.)
