A day-long conference to explore the writing of historical fiction for children, to be held at Newcastle University.
Following the successful acquisition of the Geoffrey Trease and Leon Garfield archives by Seven Stories, and to mark the centenary of Trease’s birth, a one-day conference has been planned to examine all aspects of historical fiction for children. The conference will be of interest to those who write, study or read children’s historical fiction, as well as those who teach history or children’s literature.
