Candice Millard: Winston Churchill - From Prison Break to Prime Minister at

Candice Millard’s brilliant new biography pinpoints a little-known yet specific event that shapes her subject, and, to a large effect, 20th-century history. Hero of the Empire recounts young Winston Churchill’s bold escape from a South African prison camp during the Boer War—a thrilling narrative of bravery, savagery, and chance encounters with a cast of historical characters, including Rudyard Kipling and Mohandas Gandhi.

6:30 p.m. Enjoy a pre-event tour of Churchill's watercolors and belongings in the Wendy and Emery Reves Collection. Tour sign-up will begin 30 minutes prior to the start time. Tour space is limited and is first-come, first-served.

Candice Millard will sign books shortly after her talk.
