Creative Nonfiction Panel: 2014 National Book Festival

What is creative nonfiction? What makes it creative? How do writers of this genre approach their subject matter and tackle some of its inherent challenges? National Endowment for the Arts Literature Director Amy Stolls moderated a discussion with creative nonfiction writers Paisley Rekdal and Eula Biss about their work and experiences with such issues as research, sticking to the facts, points of view and marketability.
