Historical Fiction Class with Glorie Tebbutt
September - November 2014

NovelsEven when authors are writing their own life stories or non-fiction narratives, we are making creative choices about what to include and what not to. The work is always constructed. We will read the three novels. This class requires pre-registration.

The WDM will be marking the outbreak of the First World War with four showcase exhibits – initially, one at each of our four Museums beginning August 4, 2014. We hope visitors will pause at our showcase exhibits and read the interesting Saskatchewan-based stories they have to tell. Later in 2014, the four showcases will be combined into one exhibit that will travel throughout the WDM system over the next few years.
