Liz Kessler & Alex Wheatle: Whose Side of History Are You On?

Historical fiction is a great way to learn about the past from a human perspective, and today’s stories tackle two troubling times in history. Alex’s Cane Warriors recounts the brutal uprising of slave plantation workers in 1760’s Jamaica, while Liz’s powerful When the World Was Ours follows three young friends on different sides during the Second World War. Gain insights into the authors’ meticulous research processes, and how they handle writing about such emotive topics.
