If you’re an avid reader of historical fiction, you’re going to love this year’s HNS conference!

Not only will you be able to hear from some of your favourite historical novelists – and discover new ones – but there will also be opportunities for authors to hear from you and find out more about what readers of historical novels are looking for!

Some of the biggest and most exciting names in historical fiction are attending this year’s conference. Take a look at the Who’s Who pages.

You’ll see many authors whose books you’ve read or been meaning to read. This is an unmissable opportunity to see them all under one roof and find out what spurs them on to write their books.

On top of that, the HNS conference is a unique chance to meet lovers of historical fiction from around the globe and share your passion for the genre with others from all kinds of backgrounds.
