Festival Details - "History Book Festival event with Erik Larson, author of 'The Splendid and the Vile'"...

History Book Festival event featuring Erik Larson, bestselling author of The Splendid and the Vile: A Saga of Churchill, Family, and Defiance During the Blitz (Crown, 2020) - includes author presentation, Q&A, and book signing (additional copies available for purchase). Erik Larson (#1 New York Times bestselling author of Dead Wake and The Devil in the White City) comes to the Delaware Beaches as part of his book tour for his fresh and compelling portrait of Winston Churchill and London during the Blitz. In The Splendid and the Vile, Erik Larson shows, in cinematic detail, how Churchill taught the British people “the art of being fearless” -- a story of political brinkmanship as well as an intimate domestic drama. Drawing on diaries, original archival documents, and once-secret intelligence reports—some released only recently—to provide provides a new lens on London’s darkest year through the day-to-day experience of Churchill and his family: his wife, Clementine; their youngest daughter, Mary, who chafes against her parents’ wartime protectiveness; their son, Randolph, and his beautiful, unhappy wife, Pamela; Pamela’s illicit lover, a dashing American emissary; and the advisers in Churchill’s “Secret Circle.” The Splendid and the Vile takes readers out of today’s political dysfunction and back to a time of true leadership, when, in the face of unrelenting horror, Churchill’s eloquence, courage, and perseverance bound a country, and a family, together. Sponsored by the Lee Ann Wilkinson Group Individual Ticket - $37.00 Couples Ticket - $42.00
