Fort Collins Book Fest is taking a pause in 2022 for a refresh. We'll be back with a new event in early 2023!

Real Women in Historical Fiction

There is no shortage of strong, tenacious women throughout history, even if their stories didn’t make it into the history books. Historical fiction offers authors an opportunity to explore history and re-imagine these women as characters in their own stories, with room to speculate and fill in gaps to fit their narrative.

Join authors EJ Levy (The Cape Doctor) and Samantha Silva (Love and Fury: A Novel of Mary Wollstonecraft) as they discuss their latest historical fiction novels and their process of researching and writing about women of history.

This session is livestreamed and available on, the NABEtv, or the Poudre River Public Libraries’ Facebook Live feed on the day of the event.
