News from Sides

comment
“Facts are the low-hanging fruit,” writer Hampton Sides recently told Jerome Weeks of the Dallas Morning News.

Author of the bestseller Ghost Soldiers, Sides was in his hometown Memphis when Weeks called, but he was about to meet with his fact-checker on his latest book, Blood and Thunder. It’s about Kit Carson, Navajo chief Narbona, and the winning of the American West (for the white man.) Look for the book in October.

In the meantime, if you’re in Grapevine, Texas, this weekend, check out the Mayborn Literary Nonfiction Writers Conference of the Southwest. Sides will be there on Friday and addressing the issue of fact versus fiction. Read more about it here.
