ICC’s “Between the Lines” Program Features “Non-Fiction that Reads Like Fiction” February 1

ICC Reference Librarian Amy Glass will explore books which are based on real people and events but have all the thrill, excitement and humor of a fictional work in ICC’s “Between the Lines” Program presentation, “Non-Fiction That Reads Like Fiction”, on Monday, February 1, at 2:30 pm, in Room 212C/D on the ICC East Peoria Campus.

Authors such as Erik Larson (The Devil in the White City), Jon Krakauer (Into the Wild), Laura Hillenbrand (Unbroken), and Haven Kimmel (A Girl Named Zippy) tell true-life stories which rival the fictional books of James Patterson or Helen Fielding. What makes these books so compelling? This presentation discusses “page-turning” non-fiction in a variety of genres, including the ICC 2015-16 “One Book, One College” selection, March, by Rep. John Lewis. Bring your own list of suggested non-fiction for the rest of the group!

“Between the Lines” is a lecture series presented by the faculty members of the English, Humanities and Language Studies Department at ICC.  The goal of the series is to offer literary presentations which will interest students and people in the community as well as promote reading literacy and scholarly study.

The programs are free and open to the public.
