Friday Find: Robert Caro on the Sense of Place

If you have some time to watch and/or listen this weekend, I recommend that you treat yourself to a video of Robert Caro speaking on “sense of place”: “Great books give their readers a sense of place to be able to see clearly, as though they were there,” Caro said, “and that sense of place is just as important for nonfiction as it is for fiction.”

Caro delivered the speech upon accepting the Biographers International Organization (BIO) Award at the Compleat Biographer Conference in Washington this past spring.

Enjoy, and see you back here on Monday
