What Really Matters About Sir Winston Churchill? Nov. 1

Sir Winston Churchill is a towering figure in 20th century history, a prodigious writer, and one of its most-quoted speakers and thinkers. Why do his speeches and quotes continue to resonate, years after those of his contemporaries are largely forgotten? Join Richard M. Langworth, editor of Finest Hour and of the new book of Churchill’s wit and wisdom, Churchill By Himself: The Definitive Collection of Quotations , for a talk on “What Really Matters Most About Winston Churchill?”, Thursday November 1 at 6:30 PM, at Essex Meadows’ Hamilton Hall Auditorium.

Copies of the book will be available for sale and signing. Sponsored by the Connecticut Churchill Society, a donation of $10 per person is requested. Refreshments will be served before and after the lecture, and advance registration is requested and may be made by calling the Essex Library at 860-767-1560. Essex Meadows is at 30 Bokum Road in Essex.
