What are the differences between writing fiction and non-fiction? Two authors who write in both genres will explore the different approaches to writing fiction and non-fiction. Hilary Mantel is one of our finest novelists and also the author of a critically acclaimed memoir Giving Up the Ghost. Bella Bathurst has written brilliant historical non-fiction as well as a fascinating and chilling novel. The event is chaired by Danuta Kean, freelance arts journalist and publishing commentator.
