History in Fiction and Nonfiction: Books for a Post-Truth Age


On Wednesday, November 1, join sci-fi author Steve Bellinger and historian Joseph Rulli at Evanston Public Library as they explore how historical research helps fiction and nonfiction books tell a more complete and objective story of Chicago’s past.

In their unique “Sci-Fi Geek meets History Nerd” presentation, they discuss their respective books The Chronocar and The Chicago Haymarket Affair in order to examine the “truth” of history and advocate for reason and objectivity in dealing with contemporary issues. The program beings at 7 pm, and copies of The Chronocar and The Chicago Haymarket Affair will be available to purchase.

Everyone is welcome, but please register online or by calling 847-448-8620 to guarantee your seat. The Evanston Public Library is located at 1703 Orrington Ave. in Evanston.
