Hear from writers who are proving the maxim that real life can sometimes be stranger – or at least more entertaining – than fiction. But just how fast and loose can one play with the facts in order to amuse one’s audience? What kind of responsibility does the writer have to portray historical characters accurately? How does one choose which chapter in an extraordinary life to bring to the fore? Join the Writers Guild of America, East for a discussion about translating true tales for the big screen.
