Truro Center for the Arts at Castle Hill will host a discussion by author and historian William Mann, this year’s Woody English Chair, on Wednesday, August 9 at 6:00pm at Preservation Hall in Wellfleet. Tickets for the reading are $25 for Non-Members and $20 for Members.
This discussion will coincide with his workshop “Creative Nonfiction: How to Write the Nonfiction Novel” which will run August 7 – 10 (Monday-Thursday) from 2-4pm at Castle Hill’s Edgewood Farm Campus in Truro. In this workshop you will learn how to make history come alive - whether it be your own, in the format of a memoir or a biography of someone else, or the history of a place or an event. No more dry inaccessible, academic nonfiction!
William J. Mann is an author and historian whose most recent book, The Wars of the Roosevelts: The Ruthless Rise of America’s Greatest Political Family (HarperCollins) chronicles a heretofore unknown chapter in that fabled family’s past. His Tinseltown: Murder, Morphine and Madness at the Dawn of Hollywood won the 2014 Edgar Award for Best Fact Crime and is being developed as a television series for FX. Mann’s other books include the New York Times Notable Book Kate: The Woman Who Was Hepburn, called “definitive” by the Sunday Times of London. He is an Associate Professor of History at Central Connecticut State University, and divides his time between New York and Provincetown.
