Stephanie Story: Showing the History Without Giving a Lecture

The biggest challenge of the historical novelist is how to educate readers on the complex aspects of the historical period. Yet, a narrative lecture has killed many a novel. Stephanie Storey, who faced the challenge of conveying both historical and art information in her novel, Oil and Marble, will share a variety of techniques to slip that history in without weighing down the story.

Stephanie Storey is a novelist and speaker. Her debut novel, Oil and Marble: a novel of Leonardo and Michelangelo quickly became a Los Angeles Times bestseller. The New York Times called it “tremendously entertaining” and compared her to Irving Stone, the writer of such classics as The Agony and the Ecstasy. Hudson Booksellers also named Oil and Marble as one of the Best Books of 2016. Storey is an award-winning national television producer for shows like Tavis Smiley on PBS, The Arsenio Hall Show for CBS, and The Writers’ Room for the Sundance Channel.
