DMA Arts & Letters Live: Erik Larson
Erik Larson, master of narrative nonfiction, delivers The Splendid and the Vile, a compelling portrait of Winston Churchill and London during the Blitz. Larson shows, in cinematic detail, how Churchill taught the British people “the art of being fearless.” Larson will be in conversation with Krys Boyd of KERA.
Drawing on diaries, original archival documents, and once-secret intelligence reports, Larson provides a new lens on London’s darkest year, transporting readers 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.
All tickets include a hardcover copy of The Splendid and the Vile and a signed bookplate that will be shipped directly to patrons.
The conversation will be available for ticket holders September 10-17.
