Governor General’s Award winner, historian Karolyn Smardz Frost teaches you a methodology for how to locate and receive access to public records, archives, and personal collections that help you write accurately about traditions, customs, laws, demographics, and other details that will pinpoint a time and place for your character or subject and allow them to come alive again in your writing.
