To celebrate the publication of Neil Gaiman’s collection of non-fiction, The View from the Cheap Seats, the award-winning author will be joined by Audrey Niffenegger, bestselling author of The Time Traveller’s Wife, at a rare public event in London.
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.
