Writing About Chicago With Aleksandar Hemon and Audrey Niffenegger

  • Bookends & Beginnings

If you’ve read fiction by Hemon or Niffenegger, you’ve doubtless recognized some familiar landscapes, landmarks, and locations. How important is it for a fiction writer to embed stories in factual places? Is creating a sense of place similar to creating a character, i.e., does place have to be “created” or just described? Hemon and Niffenegger will discuss these and other elements of “place,” as well as read from their works.
