Arts & Letters Live: Candice Millard - Winston Churchill - From Prison Break to Prime Minister
Candice Millard will discuss her new biography, Hero of the Empire. 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.
