Historical novels tell interesting stories about a time and its people, requiring authors to do extensive research so their writing accurately reflects that history. Using "All the Light We Cannot See," by Anthony Doerr, as the launching point, this class will offer a one-hour look at the history of France in World War II, including Free French Resistance and Nazi collaboration. We will continue with a discussion of the novel as contemporary literature. Readers and history buffs welcome! Participants should read "All the Light We Cannot See" before class.
