Historical novels tell interesting stories about a time and a place and the people who live there, requiring the authors to do extensive research so their writing accurately reflects the history of the period. Using "This Tender Land" by William Kent Kreuger as the launching point, this class will offer a one-hour look at the history of the Great Depression and then continue with a one-hour discussion of the novel as a piece of contemporary literature. Readers and history buffs welcome! Participants should read "This Tender Land" before the class.
