Just a quick note to say that the discussion took place in fron to f a packed and enthusiastic audience - it was agreed that good historical fiction provides escapism, entertainment and food for thought! Non-fiction authors are praised if their books "read like a novel"

Watch out for more Pages Ago events in the north west of England.
