“Modifying the Truth With Historical Fiction” Is there a line between fact and fiction in historical novels? How can readers know if something really happened? Author Eva Augustin Rumpf will discuss how authors modify the truth in historical fiction, using examples from her new novel, In Liberty’s Name. Rumpf holds a bachelor's degree in English and a master's in journalism. She has worked as a reporter for the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel, a speechwriter for Mayor Henry Maier and a public relations manager. Her articles and essays have appeared in newspapers and magazines around the country. She has taught journalism and advised student media at Marquette University and Texas Christian University. She lives in Milwaukee, where she writes, edits and teaches writing workshops for adults.
