Welcome to the the Historical Novel Society North America, “the place for historical fiction.”

The 2021 Historical Novel Society Conference North America conference is now past. We look forward to seeing you in June 2023 in San Antonio!


The HNSNA board is looking for board members to assist in planning the 2023 conference. Please read more about the open positions and consider volunteering to put on the conference for historical fiction.


Registered attendees from #HNS2021 can access recordings on the EventMobi app until September 25.


“It was refreshing to not be the only oddball writing about history and exciting to meet oodles of like-minded nerds.”

Kip Wilson, author of YA historical novel in verse, WHITE ROSE

“The HNS conference is a celebration of our genre and a gathering of kindred spirits.”

Patricia Bracewell, author of SHADOW ON THE CROWN and THE PRICE OF BLOOD
