Margaret George appears at the 2011 National Book Festival.
Speaker Biography: One of today's premier historical novelists, Margaret George has written about Helen of Troy, Cleopatra, Henry VIII, Mary Queen of Scots and Mary Magdalene. She has now published "Elizabeth I: A Novel" (Viking), about the legendary Elizabeth Tudor, the Virgin Queen. The book focuses on the last 15 years of her reign, beginning with the Armada in 1588, the greatest crisis she encountered. Although George's books of historic figures are fiction, she takes great pains to make them as factually accurate as possible.
