How much history is in a historical novel? Join us for a lively and informative discussion as Mary Malloy, professor of Maritime Studies at the Sea Education Association in Woods Hole, Massachusetts tackles this question during an informal brown bag session sponsored by the UB Libraries. Mary’s scholarly research informs and inspires her fiction, and she brings the past alive in her novels through an imaginative blend of history, literature and mystery.
Bring your lunch and a friend – we’ll provide beverages and dessert!
