Tell Me About A Book! Theme 2
Biographies vs. Historical Fiction: The Importance of the Individual in Fact or Fiction

Biographies and Historical Fiction are favorite genres for many book clubs. Consider the following questions yourself or share them with your book club.

  1. How important are "the facts" in historical fiction?

  2. Is there a place for modern ideas in historical fiction or biographies of historical figures?

  3. What can we learn about the future from the past?

  4. Do biographies and historical fiction appeal to you for the same reasons? Do you enjoy them both?
