Historical Fiction Book Group

Date(s) - March 13, 2023
6:30 pm - 7:30 pm

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 context of selected books.

This virtual session (via Google Meet) features Clark and Division by Naomi Hirahara, facilitated by Dr. Vincent Schleitwiler, Assistant Teaching Professor, University of Washington.

Set in 1944 Chicago, this eye-opening and poignant mystery tells the story of a young woman searching for the truth about her revered older sister’s death. The novel brings to focus the struggles of one Japanese American family released from mass incarceration at Manzanar during World War II.

Co-sponsored by the Princeton Public Library. Book Group sessions are NOT recorded.
