Speaker: Sandra Gail Lambert

"How Melding History & Story Preserves Lives"


Sandra Gail Lambert speaks on how writers can meld history and story in a way that preserves the lives of people, especially marginalized people, that might otherwise be lost.  Her novel, The River's Memory, became her way of believing in characters she knew must have existed and then giving them form.  Lambert will share both the pitfalls and the glory of doing this type of research.  There will be tales of bog bodies, the dangers of microfiche machines, improbable coincidences, and the joy of reading a faded newspaper article that untangles a recalcitrant plot.   

Sandra Gail Lambert writes fiction and memoir.  Among the places her writing has appeared are New Letters, Brevity, the North American Review, The Weekly Rumpus, Water~Stone Journal, and Arts & Letters.  Her novel, The River's Memory, was published by Twisted Road, and excerpts of it have won prizes from Big Fiction Magazine and the Saints and Sinners Short Fiction Contest.  She lives in Gainesville, FL.  http://sandragaillambert.com/
