What Makes Writers Tick? Find Out Next Tuesday

Award-winning author of Ben Franklin’s Almanac and Our Eleanor Candy Fleming is will be at the NYPL on May 18 from 4:30-6:30 where she will speak about her own research and writing process—how she uses non-fiction and primary resources to research historical eras, and then compiles them into highly illustrated, highly narrative format.

Ms. Fleming won the 2009 Flora Stieglitz award for Non-Fiction for her book The Lincolns: A Scrapbook Look at Abraham and Mary that captures intimate details as well as the broad sweep of history. This scrapbook-style history draws upon photographs, letters, engravings, and even cartoons to “form an enthralling museum on every page.” Both her research and writing acumen are displayed in this wonderful text.
